Texas BBQ Rub


A staple at my house. We rub this on most anything we BBQ. It makes a glaze as it cooks. I like it best on slow smoked ribs. Rub into meat 10 to 30 minutes before cooking.

1 quart dry rub


  • 3 cups sugar

  • 1 cup ground black pepper

  • 1 cup paprika

  • 1 cup monosodium glutamate (such as Ac'cent®)

  • ½ cup salt


  1. Whisk sugar, black pepper, paprika, monosodium glutamate, and salt together in a bowl. Store in an airtight container.
