This rub was O.K. but it has a fundamental flaw. Never, EVER rub salt into the meat until just (10-20 mins.) before cooking time! This really dries out whatever meat you are using and adds to the overall saltiness of your dish. I grew up in the midwest and cooked at a rib joint for four years, making literally tons of ribs. Please do not make potentially great BBQ average by salting it too early!

Every year I make baby-back ribs for about 60 people for the 4th of July. This dry rub has perfected my recipe! (First, sprinkle ribs generously with liquid smoke, then add dry rub - wrap individually in foil and bake slowly in oven - add some BBQ sauce and throw on the grill for a few minutes!

I used it today for our pork steaks and OMG, it was SOOO yummy. It kept the steaks juicy and was perfect. I did like all the suggestions said and added dried onion and some red pepper. I let it sit in the fridge for 5.5 hours. My husband was raving about it and even my "no, I'll wait and eat pizza at the party" son ate some. I'll be making this OFTEN. I put it in the blender and mixed it all together so I could put it in a seasoning jar. Makes it easier to apply and store.
