Uncle JJ's Rib Rub

Rated as 4.87 out of 5 Stars

"Quick and easy BBQ rub. Great for pork and chicken. When storing in an airtight container you can mix 3 tablespoons of cornstarch to prevent clumping. Apply liberally to both sides of meat that has been brought to room temperature. Let sit, covered, for 30 minutes before grilling or smoking the meat."
