    My favorite is the Moore County Rub as found in Jack Daniel's BBQ book. This rub works well on ribs, tri-tip and even chicken.

    My cooking method is basically hot smoking in a covered barrel or brick stack.

    Moore County Dry Rub
    1 tablespoon paprika
    1 tablespoon seasoned salt
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon red pepper
    1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/4 teaspoon celery salt
    1/4 teaspoon chili powder
    1/4 teaspoon cumin
    Combine ingredients. Makes enough to rub 2 racks of ribs.

    You probably already know this but if the ribs you get still have that membrain on the bone side it really helps to remove that before cooking. Takes a good knife and some patience to skin it off but helps get the fat out of the meat.

    Dang, now I want ribs....

    Well that's the beauty of the rub Vs a sugary sauce.... and just like that 'diet ribs.' No? Okay, how about life is short, eat ribs today!

    Here is a dry rib rub receipt I have used for several years when smoking ribs.



    Kansas City Rib Rub

    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup paprika
    1 tablespoon black pepper
    1 tablespoon salt
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1 tablespoon garlic powder
    1 tablespoon onion powder
    1 teaspon cayenne ( might want to try 1/4 teaspoon first)

    Rub on both sides of the ribs several hours (or overnight) before cooking, put in a plastic bag and set in frig.

    A little tip to help get the membrane off the underside of the ribs. Start one corner with a knife, then take a paper towel and grip the corner and pull carefully. Very easy to hang onto that way. Enjoy

    I start by rubbing her shoulders for about a 1/2 hour and then I say.."Man! Some ribs sound good! Would you make me some? She says "sure baby anything for you after that nice back rub". That's my rub recipe.... Jeff

    Try this Rub :


    1 cup Sugar

    1 cup Kosher Salt

    1/2 cup Black Pepper (adjust down for less heat)

    1/4 cup Granulated Garlic

    1/4 cup Onion Powder

    1 Tbsp Cayenne (use Chipotle or other medium pepper for less heat)

    1/2 tsp Cumin

    1/2 tsp Oregano

    put the rub on, and let it "soak" in for a minimum of 2 hours in the fridge, but overnight is best.

    Try this - dont rub with anything, sprinkle Tabasco sauce over ribs generously before and during cooking ( dont worry about the heat, it cooks out) then when almost done use your favorite babeque sauce sparingly or heavy if you prefer. My brother from tennesee told me this years ago and I laughed ( until I tried it) If you are skeptical, cut a few bones off and just try it
