Sweet Rub for BB's

Discussion in 'Pork' started by benny8, Jul 3, 2010.

  1. Can anyone help me out with a sweet rub for babybacks?  I have Jeff''s Naked Rib Rub and it is great, but I have a few that thinks it is to spicy.  If someone could help me out it would certainly be appreciated.

    This is the rub i have decided to make as my go to for any pork.

    first instead of plain yellow mustard . i mix

    1 cup yellow mustard

    1/2 cup molasses

    1 tsp liquid crab boil
    Brush this liberally on your pork.

    The rub:

    1/4 cup hungarian or spanish paprika

    1/4 cup onion powder

    1/4 cup garlic powder

    1/4 cup cbp

    2 tsp celery seed

    2 tsp ground mustard

    2 tsp cumin

    1 tsp nutmeg

    1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar.

    it helps to get the lumps out if you run this thru a grinder or food processer.

    Coat the pork w/ a heavy coat of the rub. wrap and in the fridge overnight if possible.

    B4 you smoke hit the pig w/ another dusting of rub and smoke away.

    This recipe makes enough rub for 6 racks of spares or 2 large butts.

       Hope you enjoy and let me know if you try it.


     This is my pig rub and if it's not sweet enough you can add more sugar.

     Also, i add 2 tsp cayanne when i make it for us .But i realize that everyone doesn't like the heat.
  3. That sounds delicious eman.  Think I'll have to try that next time.

    When I do ribs I add a bit of brown sugar to my rub to sweeten it up some
