A Memphis style rub that I use primarily on pork butts and ribs prior to smoking. I usually coat the meat with the rub and let rest 24 to 48 hours wrapped in plastic wrap. I then sprinkle a light second application immediately before putting the meat into the smoker. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.

Ran the smoker at 220 degrees and added wood chips every 45 min. 2 hours in on the rack then pull out and wrapped ribs in foil for the next two hours then last hour unwrap ribs out of foil add sweet baby rays bbq sauce and put back in to finish. My meat pulled right of bones Read More

Excellent rub! I used this actually on a pork butt which I slow cooked for 12 hours in the oven. It tastes fantastic without over-powering the taste of the meat itself. It is generally easy to put together as we had most of the ingredients in the pantry. Read More
