Been using DP rubs for most of my cooks and they are great and taste really good. Looking for a change of taste in the bark of my BB's and Butt's and hope someone will share a homemade recipe for a good rub. Thanks guys and gals. :)

    For ribs I use salt, pepper, cayenne, and mint. -RP

    A classic Que rub is equal parts salt,pepper,sugar, & paprika. Tweek to taste...adding garlic powder, subbing brown sugar, adding cayenne, etc, etc, etc
  • Gator's homemade rub looks like a winner

    I've been stuck on Dr. BBQ's Sweeter Big-Time Barbeque Rub from his Big-Time BBQ Cookbook,
  • Thanks for the feedback....have very little confidence when it comes to eggsperimenting on my own. Enjoy getting help from the folks on this forum. :)

  • Here are two I like to use here at dad's Kitchen...
    We just used the Santa Fe Rub on a stuffed Pork tenderloin at the Frozen Fest on Sat.
    It's great on ribs too.
    I have only used the second rub on ribs and it is complamented well with the Northwoods Mop!

    3 T. chili powder
    1 T. ground cumin
    1 T. celery seed
    1 T. black pepper
    2 t. garlic powder
    2 t. dried leaf oregano, crumbled
    1 t. salt

    Northwood's Spice Rub

    2 t. sweet paprika
    1 t. ground cumin
    1 t. brown sugar
    1/2 t. salt
    3/4 t. oregano
    1/4 t. cayenne pepper

    Northwood's Mop Sauce:
    1 C. tomato sauce
    1/4 C. cider vinegar
    2 T. brown sugar
    1 T. olive oil
    2 t. Worcestershire
    1 t. dry mustard
    1 t. crushed garlic
    Combine and cook, then cool before using.
  • Its not homemade but I like Bad Byrons Butt Rub
    Large & MiniMax in Lexington, KY
  • I am still tweaking this , but the following is pretty good. Keep any left over rub in an air tight container for future use.

    LoneStarEgg Rub

    1 Cup Brown Sugar
    1 TBS Coarse Black Pepper
    1 TBS Paprika
    2 TBS Granulated Garlic
    1 TBS Onion Powder
    1 TBS Kosher Salt
    1 TBS Montreal Steak Seasoning
    2 TBS Peach Gelatin (Jell-O)
    2 Tsp Ground Coriander

    Measure all ingredients into a gallon zip lock bag, seal trapping some air inside and shake to mix.

    My wife doesn’t like it spicy, but for a little more Zip, Add:
    1 TBS Cayenne Pepper
    1 TBS Chili Powder
  • Thanks to LoneStar and everyone else....Bob
