Perfect and simple dry rub. This is very easy to make and leads to tender, flavorful ribs. I like that it is middle of the road in spiciness and doesn't have any odd flavors.

The flavor of this rub was nice on baked chicken, however I thought it was much too spicy for me and my family (and I usually like spicier foods).

I absolutely love this rub! I put all ingredients except chilli pepper flakes which I regret it would have gave it a kick! If you like a well balanced rub try this not too sweet and not too spic...

This rub smells so good. I can not wait to use it tonight on our chicken.

Loved it. Marinated the chick overnight in a bag with one large lime & water. Was very tender.

Terrific! Added a pinch of turmeric and coriander seed. Excellent basic rub recipe. Thanks for sharing!!

Pretty much followed the recipe with the following exceptions: used 1 tbl spoon smoked paprika and 1 tbl spoon regular, less black pepper, 1/8 tsp cayenne; 1/4 tsp ginger. Delicious!!

Super easy! Super delicious! I didn't change a thing!

Tried it on ribs and it was excellent. Very tasty. I didn't change a thing. Will use this rub again.

Loved it. Just enough heat; everyone enjoyed these ribs! Topped them off with a little BBQ sauce on the grill, they were good.
