This recipe is unbelievably a very simple recipe as far as ingredients but the amounts and process are absolutely paramount.

In a large shallow dish measure out the dark brown sugar and the paprika.

At this stage it is necessary to make sure all lumps are worked out and that the paprika is mixed evenly with the brown sugar.

Once the mixture is smooth in texture continue to add 1 dry ingredient at a time mixing well and removing the lumps each time either with a fork or a pair of clean hands works well also.





Makes 2 cups of rub, enough to coat 2 slabs of spare ribs…feel free to double the recipe. Make sure the rub stays dry and airtight until ready to use.
