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!
