Pork Rib Rub

Pork Rib Rub

Babel Phaedrus 0

"A delicious rub for baby back pork ribs! Makes enough rub for 6 racks of ribs. Ground rosemary is almost impossible to find in stores. I grind up dried rosemary leaves in a molcajete, with a mortar and pestle, or a clean coffee grinder. Trust me, it's worth the few extra minutes it takes!"

great stuff. I think this helped me do some of the best ribs I've made. thanks

Yummy! We made ribs today and this rub was great. After I put it on the baby back ribs I stuck the ribs on a rack in the pan, put them in the oven on about 225 degrees and cooked them low and ...

This stuff is the shizz! I'll admit to cutting the amount of black pepper in half but left the cayenne as written. I used it on boneless ribs and it permeated the meat really well. Chicken is ge...

This is the best rub I have found. Just made a fresh batch for ribs on the grill tonight.
