Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Rub ribs with olive oil or mustard so rub sticks on meat. Do a good coat of rub over both sides and then wrap ribs with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate overnight. I smoke them for 3 hours, wrap in foil with butter and honey, and then smoke wrapped for another hour. You want to keep temp at about 260 degrees F (125 degrees C). Enjoy straight off BBQ pit.

I have used this rub several times. Very good rub but in mine and my wife’s opinion it need more pop. I added more cayenne and now we use it on all our ribs and Boston Butts. Don’t know how some...

A well balanced sweet heat rub. Maybe a bit to much sugar as it blackened the ribs a bit more than I prefer. Will use again, but with some modifications.

Wonderful rub! A batch lasts us for months!

Absolutely delicious but I would cut on cayenne it's a bit too hot.
