Arkibu BBQ Rub
Yields1 ServingPrep Time15 mins
You've got to have a good rub for your bbq. Here's my Arkibu Rub. I use it on almost everything I smoke. If I'm smoking ribs, I will rub in some brown sugar first, then add the rub.
1.50 cups Smoked Paprika (I use Penzey's Smoked Paprika)
½ cup Black Pepper (Course)
½ cup Kosher Salt
½ cup White Sugar
¼ cup Chili Powder (Medium)
¼ cup Garlic Powder
¼ cup Onion Powder
1 tbsp Cayenne PepperThis keeps it fairly mild. You make it 1/4 cup to add more heat to this rub.
Mix it up and Store in a cool dry place. This is a "medium heat" recipe. Add more cayenne if you want some real fire!
