The Best Dry Rub Recipe
I have the best recipe, which I learned from my good friend Harry Soo at Slap Yo’ Daddy BBQ.
If you are a BBQ fan, you would know Harry as he is one of the top BBQ pit masters in the United States, having won numerous competitions across the country.
He has also appeared on various TV programs and teaches BBQ courses on the weekends.
What I am sharing with you is THE BEST dry rub recipe you will find online, straight from a top BBQ guru.
Ingredients for Dry Rub
The rub consists of the following spices and ingredients:
- Chili Powder
- Smoked Paprika
- Garlic Powder
- Steak Seasonings
- Cayenne Pepper
How to Make Dry Rub for Ribs?
Mix all the ingredients together and you have a DIY all-purpose rub that you can use on ribs, baby back ribs, chicken breasts, wings, thighs and legs), steaks, pork, turkey and meats.
You can store the rub in an air-tight container and use it whenever you want. Just rub some of the spices on the surface of the protein and you can grill, pan-fry, bake, roast, or smoke the meat.
The end results are juicy, moist and delicious meats with amazing flavors.
