spice rub …

June 2, 2011

Now that summer is here, many of us our dusting off our barbecues and getting ready to do some heavy-duty grilling the next few months.  I love to cook on our barbecue!  Some good barbecue really is the essence of those long summer nights.
I recently starting cooking my pork ribs with a rub, and I have fallen in love with the great flavor it gives to the ribs.  A spice rub can consist of a combination of any spices you like.  There are many who claim that their rub is the best, but when it comes down to it, it is all about personal preference.  Read more for my favorite spice rub recipe.
Meat Spice Rub
(can be used on ribs, steak, chicken, turkey, whatever you prefer)
1 1/2 tablespoons sea salt (I like to use 1/2 coarse, and 1/2 fine sea salt)
1-1 1/2  tablespoons course fresh ground black pepper (to preference)
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tsp sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/3 cup ground paprika
1/2-1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp dry ground mustard
Mix all ingredients together well, and store in air tight container.
Enjoy!
xoxo,
Caroline

    Oh I am totally going to try this…sounds so good! Thanks!

    Oh and my key lime pies…same recipe as the lemon…just use lime juice instead of lemon juice and add a drop of green food coloring! They are so easy and so delish!
