All-Purpose BBQ Rub

This all-purpose rub packs a flavorful punch. It goes great with pork tenderloin; pork or beef ribs; flank, skirt or hanger steak; and chicken.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1 Tbs. firmly packed light brown sugar 
  • 1/4 cup paprika 
  • 1 Tbs. chili powder  
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper 
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika 
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt  
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste 

Directions:

In a small container with a tight-fitting lid, stir together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, cayenne, smoked paprika, salt and several grinds of black pepper. Cover and shake vigorously to mix. Use immediately, or store in a cool, dark place for up to 1 month. Makes about 2/3 cup.
