SpiceJunkie's BBQ dry rub No.14

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"I made this rub for my daughters 14th birthday, which is why I called it BBQ dry rub No.14. It gives pork a nice sweet flavor that goes well with all the other spices. This rub has a mild flavor and will not burn sensitive pallets. The light brown sugar gives a gentle sweetness to offset the other spices and is great on ribs or pork shoulder. For ribs sprinkle salt and pepper and refrigerate overnight. Larger cuts of meat can use more. For heat lovers, add 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper (or any amount you like)."

Yummo! Everyone loved these ribs! I just want to add that prior to rubbing the spices on, I use a very sharp knife and remove as much of the membrane on the back of the ribs as possible. I ...

This rub is great! I used this on some ribs (followed by barbecue sauce) and my husband and I loved it. I left the cilantro out of the mix because we don't care for it and I also did not add the...

I added more brown sugar, but this is a great mix for chicken breasts on the grill.

I've used this rub for about 10 years now. The only difference with mine, I cannot use cilantro(wife is allergic).

WOW! Everyone was so impressed! Such an easy recipe and had everyone raving.

We thought this was awesome. I put it on about 24 hours before I cooked my ribs and the meat was so flavorful and just spiced perfectly. Will definitely make again.

It's Great!! I use it on Salmon and bake it... It's Yummy!!! Good Good Rub!!! ;)
