BASIC BARBECUE RUB (ALSO KNOWN AS 4-3-2-1 RUB)

The idea behind this versatile rub is really just the proportions. 4 parts salt, 3 parts sugar, 2 parts paprika, and 1 part of one or several spices.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Tbsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 Tbsp cayenne powder

Directions:

1 Combine ingredients in a small bowl.

2 Rub onto meat and skin and allow to sit at least one hour before smoking.

Unused portions can be kept in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

For ribs, try brown sugar, smoked paprika, and 1 Tbsp each garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, black pepper, and cayenne pepper.
