Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a medium size bowl add all of the ingredients, mix well. Store in a glass jar or container.
  • Note: 11/8/2015 ~ I added 1/4 cup cumin to the ingredients, per Rick, makes the rub even better. It's certainly optional to all who have made the original rub and liked it, maybe try it with the cumin and see what YOU think:)

    Finally got around to making up a batch of this last week. LOVE it and it will become a staple in our spice cupboard. The smoked paprika is wonderful in this! Kudos to Rick on a great recipe! More in IMI

    This was Deeeelicious! I'm glad this made a lot so I have plenty for future use. Just bottled it up in extra spice bottles I had lying around :) I also wouldn't mind trying it on some steaks like Frankieanne did below, or even a whole chicken and roasted! Lot's of options :) Added more in FA's IMI link Ricks Rub

    I sure like the sound of this rub. I'm not a big fan of BBQ sauce so I'm always looking for alternatives. This sounds like a real tasty way to cook ribs.

    My new smoker arrives tomorrow. Your recipe hit my feed just in time. This will be my labor day rub for my ribs. I'm loving the smoked paprika.

    I usually use McCormick's Grill Mates Smokehouse Maple on my steaks because it has brown sugar in it along with the maple. I love brown sugar on meats! I used this on a New York cut steak. I used chipotle chili powder and left out the cayenne (I don't have any) and it was just spicy enough for me. I liked the brown sugar mixed with the paprika. Very nice! I added a picture and put a thread in IMI. 8/3/13
