Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons cumin powder
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper


Rub seasoning using 1-2 tablespoons per slab of ribs. I use more because I like them hot. Put on grill in single layer away from direct heat source. cook slowly for 1 1/2 to 2 hours on low heat. After cooking I wrap the ribs in foil and let them rest for 30 min. this makes for very tender ribs. This seasoning mixture will keep in sealed jar in the refrigerator.

BEST EVER RIB RUB!!, Member mysophie423

I've tried a number of Rib Rubs, but this one, HANDS DOWN is the BEST! I added some Sweet Baby Ray's Honey BBQ Sauce as well, and it was a real hit, and tasted phenomenal! A MUST TRY recipe.
