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. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.

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

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

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

  6. Enjoy!
