Home made dry rub mix for pork ribs

Have bought and used several dry rubs on ribs and like them all...Some more expensive than others.  Does anyone have a homemade rub for pork ribs that works well??  Have been going through ribs like a beaver through wood lately....just flat love'm on the BGE!!!

    Here's one from amazingribs that I really like.

    Memphis Dust Recipe

    Yield. Makes about 3 cups. I typically use about 1 tablespoon per side of a slab of St. Louis cut ribs, and a bit less for baby backs. Store the extra in a zipper bag or a glass jar with a tight lid.
    Preparation time. 10 minutes to find everything and 5 minutes to dump them together.

    Ingredients
    3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
    3/4 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup paprika
    1/4 cup Morton's kosher salt
    1/4 cup garlic powder
    2 tablespoons ground black pepper
    2 tablespoons ground ginger powder
    2 tablespoons onion powder
    2 teaspoons rosemary powder

    Go to the web sight to read more about this rub.

    Here one I like

    All-South Barbecue Rub

    Chris Schlesinger's basic BBQ rub recipe. You can't go wrong with this one.

    Recipe From : The Thrill of the Grill by Chris Schlesinger

    2 Tablespoons salt (Kosher)
    2 Tablespoons sugar
    (Raw)
    2 Tablespoons brown sugar
    2 Tablespoons ground cumin
    2 Tablespoons chili powder
    2 Tablespoons black pepper
    (Freshly Cracked)
    1 Tablespoon cayenne pepper
    4 Tablespoons paprika
    (Hungarian)

    All you do is throw them together and mix them well or you can if you have one run them through a coffee grinder.

    +1 on Meathead's Memphis Dust. Have tried variations, granulated garlic vs garlic powder, smoked paprika vs Hungarian, table salt (2/3rds of what is called for) vs Kosher, Turbinado vs regular brown etc....
    The key ingredients are ginger and rosemary powder. 
    Staple at our house, always good.

    That Memphis rub sounds perfect for pork. Need to track down some rosemary powder. Thanks for sharing.
  • Hot and Sweet rub. I really like it a lot. Found it somewhere online


    1 1/4 cup light brown sugar
    1/4 cup sweet or smoked paprika
    1/4 cup garlic powder
    1/4 cup kosher or coarse salt
    1/4 cup freshly cracked black pepper
    3 tablespoons onion powder
    3 tablespoons thyme
    3 tablespoons oregano
    3 tablespoons chili powder
    1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • I adapted mine from the Joy of Cooking's southern dry rub. 2 tbs cumin 2 tbs packed brown sugar 1/4 cup paprika 2 tbs chili powder (experiment with varieties like ancho ;) ) Cayenne pepper as needed for a little heat 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp dry mustard 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp onion powder 1-2 tbs kosher salt 1-2 tbs ground peppercorns 1/2 tbs oregano Mix it all up with your hands. I use it on ribs, pork butt (sprinkle a little on after pulling too), brisket, tri-tip (awesome, especially if doing a simple board sauce). I used it on a spatchcock chicken and it was good, but I prefer a citrus based marinade for that. It's changed over the years, but experimentation is fun :D
  • Sorry bout the formatting. I typed the above in recipe format, how do I get it to stay that way?
