This rub is perfect for all kinds of pork, whether it's ribs or Carolina-style pulled pork. One tip: If you apply your spice rub too early before you start cooking it will cause the pork to develop a ham-like flavor, and not in a good way. So apply this rub right before the pork hits the smoker.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups paprika
  • 3/4 cup lemon pepper
  • 3/4 cup ​brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup black pepper
  • 1/4 cup white pepper
  • 1/4 cup onion salt
  • 1/4 cup garlic (granulated)
  • 1/4 cup chili powder

How to Make It

1. Mix all ingredients and store in an airtight container in a cool dark place.

2. Apply to pork with a shaker right before it goes into the smoker. Apply rub evenly over ribs. The general rule is what sticks is the perfect amount.
