BBQ Bob's Basic Rub

BBQ Bob’s Basic Rub

Rub that meal the right way!

Many agree that almost anything grilled or smoked tastes better with a rub. There are many different rubs for different kinds of meats and flavors, but this rub is a real favorite. You can make twice or even thrice this recipe and keep it in an airtight mason jar, that way it can last for quite some time. It’s always best to make just enough for each use so your rub is as fresh as possible. This is a sensational rub for ribs, brisket, chicken, and much more!
