Make Your Own BBQ Rib Rub

by Editorial Team on August 2nd, 2017

Many people are daunted by the idea of making their own ribs at home. “I can’t possibly do that.” is heard way too often. So, ribs become a go to restaurant sort of meal. That doesn’t have to be a bad thing, as there are many good barbecue restaurants around, but you also shouldn’t have to wait for a night out to have a meal that you enjoy. Making good ribs is as easy as learning how to season and cook them.

When you think about ribs, there are two different types. Those made with a sauce, and those made with a rub. For lots of flavor and ease in making, a rub is the way to go. You could take a shortcut and buy a prepackage rub mix, but why would you do that? It’ll cost you more, and you’ll have to settle for the flavors that are in the package.

When making a rub, you need to include several different elements: sweet, salty, and seasonings. This is the best BBQ rib rub I’ve ever seen. With seven different elements for seasoning plus salt and sugar, it delivers a lot of flavor in perfect balance.

Another great thing about making your own rub, besides getting to control the balance of flavors, is that you can make it in the quantity you want. Need only enough for one batch of ribs? Go ahead and make a small amount. Want to have rub on hand for an impromptu barbecue? Double or triple the recipe, and store the extra in a sealed container.

Of course, once you’ve got the rub and the ribs, it’s time to enjoy the outdoors. Cook those ribs on your outdoor grill, grab a chilled beverage, and have a seat. Whether you’re lounging on a porch swing, outdoor dining set, or other kitchen and dining products, you have a fun evening ahead of you.
