Uncle JJ's Rib Rub

Rated as 4.83 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."

Uncle JJ, you are a GOOD MAN. The recipe was followed exactly. I tried this on pork chops and chicken (both BBQ'd of course) and they were divine. As suggested, I added three tablespoons of c...

Yowza! Kick City! We love it. If you are shy of heat you may want to reduce the cayenne and maybe the chili powder. Otherwise this is a fabulous rub for chicken or pork as suggested. I wouldn't ...
