Marlboro Man Dry Rub

For the grilling portion of the big BBQ of 2011, Garrett was in charge of the meats. A buddy of his swears this is the best rub for Memphis-style ribs.

In a bowl combine:

  • 1/4 c. paprika
  • 1 1/2 T. Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 T. firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 T. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. celery salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin

Use on 4 to 6 pounds of ribs.

We omitted the dry mustard this recipe lists – only because the dry mustard in the cupboard was next to a bag of curry. We did not want a curry flavored rub! We cut the recipe in half and used it on one rack of rib and a three-pound pork roast. There was still at least half a cup left over.
