Dry Rub Recipes


Looking for something more sweet and savory? Try the delicious Sweet Carolina rub which incorporates a heavy dose of brown sugar and a dash of chili powder. For something similar, try the Savory Dry Rub which pulls in dark brown sugar and more salt.

For something light and fresh, you can't go wrong with the Herby Lemon-Pepper recipe. All you'll need is Italian seasoning, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder and lemon pepper.

If you want to go all out on the spice, give the Ancho or Blackening recipes a go. Both use lots of ancho chili powder and cayenne pepper to heat things up.
