BBQ rub


In the south, it is quite daring to add anything "BBQ" to my blog.  Down here in Georgia, where people are serious about their BBQ, you'll find some of the best around.  Like mind blowing, didn't know it existed while in Indiana, good!

So as daunting as it is... here is a rub recipe.  I used to think BBQ meant slather the sauce on and then grill it.  I know some of you are laughing and some of you are probably thinking "yeah... so... that's what I do".  However, the sauce will cause the meat to burn before it's cooked and also not penetrate the meat to season it.  So... grill it with a dry rub and then add the sauce at the end... if you must!:)  This recipe is by far better than any of the bottled stuff at the grocery store!     

Servings- makes enough for 2 pounds of meat
Total Time 5 minutes
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika 
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika (optional: you can just add 2 tablespoons of regular if you don't have the smoked)
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (add more if desired)

1.  In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients until well blended.  Rub onto your meat at least 30 minutes prior to grilling... the longer the better to let the seasonings soak in!  Store any unused portion in an air-tight container.
