Pork Butt Rub

Sweet and savory, with plenty of aromatics, this all-pu­rpose rub provides the perfect seasoning for any pork butt. Be sure to season liberally, using your hands to work the seasonings into every crevice of the cut.”

2 Tbsp granulated sugar
2 Tbsp kosher salt
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp MSG

Stir together all ingred­ients in a bowl, and store in an airtight container up to one year.

Pork/Beef Rib Rub

“Paint the rub on heavily. You may add this entire rub to 1/2 cup of olive oil to create a paste and then apply liberally to all facets of the ribs. This recipe will work well with either beef or pork ribs but I recommend pork.”

1 Tbsp ground ancho chili
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp Maldon sea salt (kosher salt is optional)
1 tsp cumin (toasting is optional)
1 tsp coriander (toasting is optional)
1 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Smoked Rib Rub

This recipe, from our article on smoking ribs on a gas grill, makes about 1 cup. Combine all of the ingred­ients in a bowl and mix with fork or whisk. Use liberally on ribs, and store remaining rub in an airtight jar.

1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup paprika (hot paprika for an extra kick)
1/4 cup salt (prefe­rably coarse salt)
3 Tbsp black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp celery seeds (optional)
1 tsp cayenne pepper
