Updated on June 29, 2011

The best spice rub ever - Gauranteed!

Here's an easy-to-make spice rub that is sure to make your next BBQ a success. Use it on ribs, chicken, tri-tip... whatever's going on the grill, and watch your guests drop their jaw... to shovel more of your delicious BBQ in!

  • 1/4 Cup Red Sea Salt (or Hawaiian Pink Sea Salt)
  • 1/4 Tbsp Dark Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Hungarian Paprika
  • 1 Tbsp Dried Smoked Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Dried Onion Powder
  • 2 Tsp Dried Fennel Seed
  • 2 Tsp Dried Caraway Seed
  • 2 Tsp White Pepper
  • 2 Tsp Ancho Chili Powder
  • 1 Tsp Mustard Powder
  • 1 Tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 Tsp Dried Chives
  • 1 Tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 Tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon


 In a large saute pan, toast all ingredients except the brown sugar together until the mix smells like toast (about 2-3 minutes). Remove blend from heat and allow to cool. Once cooled, add the brown sugar and you're ready to BBQ!

      Great hub. I tried to comment earlier but I had so much trouble with hubpages. Sorry i am so late. I have a fabulous recipe, but it's not a rub. My ribs, honestly, fall off the bone, but I am interested in trying a rub. My mouth is watering.
