250g TABLE SALT (=8,82oz=¾ cup)
250g BROWN SUGAR (=8,82oz=1 ¾ cup)
100g MILD CHILI POWDER (=3,53oz=13 ⅓ tbsp) or 35g HOT CHILI POWDER (=1,23oz=4 ⅔ tbsp)
80g SWEET PAPRIKA (=2,82oz=11 ⅔ tbsp)
20g BLACK PEPPER POWDER (=0,71oz=3 ⅛ tbsp)
Prepare the rub by mixing all the ingredients, then place the mixture into jars.
We usually prepare 3 or 4 small jars at a time so as to have our rub ready whenever we need it (we usually use it both for BBQ ribs and for pulled pork). Don’t worry, its shelf life is a long-lasting one. In any case, you can decide to prepare just the amount you need each time: in this latter case you will find the right amounts in each recipe.
The only thing you need to know before preparing such a big amount is how hot your chili powder is and how hot you want your BBQ rub to be!
BBQ rub is the secret ingredient behind any BBQ success: don’t buy it, do it yourself!
