"How to Make a Flavorful Barbecue Rub for Your Favorite Meats"

Here's a basic recipe for a delicious barbecue rub that you can use on various meats like ribs, chicken, pork chops, or brisket:


Flavorful Barbecue Rub


- 1/4 cup brown sugar

- 2 tablespoons paprika

- 1 tablespoon chili powder

- 1 tablespoon garlic powder

- 1 tablespoon onion powder

- 1 tablespoon ground black pepper

- 1 tablespoon salt

- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste for spiciness)

- 1 teaspoon dried oregano

- 1 teaspoon dried thyme

- 1 teaspoon ground cumin


1. In a mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients: brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, salt, cayenne pepper, oregano, thyme, and cumin.

2. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly distributed.

3. Before applying the rub to your meat, make sure to pat the meat dry with paper towels to help the rub adhere better.

4. Sprinkle the rub generously over the meat, using your hands to massage it into the surface of the meat to ensure even coverage.

5. Let the meat sit with the rub on it for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat. For even better flavor, you can let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours or even overnight.

6. Cook the meat as desired, whether on the grill, smoker, or in the oven.

Feel free to adjust the amounts of the ingredients to suit your taste preferences and the amount of meat you are seasoning. Enjoy your delicious barbecue!
