This mixture makes an excellent rub for ribs, or use it on grilled country style ribs or chops.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons​ chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons cumin powder
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons paprika

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.

  2. Rub seasoning using 1-2 tablespoons per slab of ribs (The more you use, the spicier they will be).

  3. Put on a grill in single layer away from direct heat source. Cook slowly for 1 1/2 to 2 hours on low heat.

  4. After cooking wrap the ribs in foil and let them rest for 30 min. This makes for very tender ribs.
