  • Ready In

  1. Place allspice, salt, garlic powder, sugar, chipotle powder, cloves, thyme, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon into a very large bowl. Mix together until well blended. Store in airtight containers.
  2. To use, rub spice mix onto the meat of your choice, about 1 1/2 teaspoons per serving. For best results, marinate for at least an hour to allow the flavors of the rub to penetrate the meat.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This was way too hot for me and I love spicy food. Next time, I will cut the cayenne in half.

This rub has decent flavor but it is not Jamaican Jerk. I've worked alongside a true Jamaican who would cook for us all the time and this rub does not taste like Jerk anything.

Wow, this is awesome stuff. Used it to make a barbecue pork in a crock pot, it was so delicious.

I've made a lot of different rubs for ribs, chicken, beef, pork chops but this might be the last one I ever make. It is that good! After I made it, I was a little worried with how it smelled and...
