Dry Rub and My Favorite BBQ Sauce for Ribs!
Dry Rib Rub
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup paprika
1/3 cup garlic powder
2 Tablespoons onion powder
2 Tablespoons chili powder
1 Tablespoon ground black pepper
1 Tablespoon Cayenne pepper
1 Tablespoon ground White Pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons crushed, dried oregano
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
Combine all of the rub ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle liberally (or how heavy you desire) on meat that you're cooking. Cook however you desire on a grill or smoker.
This makes a lot of rub, I keep the extra in a ziploc baggie in my spice cupboard.
Di's Favorite BBQ Sauce
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup minced onion
1 heaping teaspoon, minced garlic
1-1/2 cups water
1 sm. can tomato paste
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1-3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons liquid smoke (I usually use Mesquite or Hickory flavor)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle powder (use a whole teaspoon full if you like more spice
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and saute for a few minutes, then add the minced garlic and cook a couple more minutes untill the onions turn translucent and start to brown slightly. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk to combine. Bring mixture to a boil over medium/high heat. Reduce heat and let simmer, stirring occasionally for 1-1/2 hours uncovered so the sauce will thicken slightly. Remove from heat. Use on ribs or in pulled pork for sandwiches or however you desire. Yummo!!!
