Instructions to make:

Sledge's Sweet and Spicy Rib Rub

This dry rub can be used on pork or beef ribs, chicken, chicken wings, beef, pork, steaks, etc!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar (firmly packed in measuring cup)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup + a little over.. half seasoned salt, half bucks seasoning
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions:

1) Mix all the ingredients together. If you don't have a food processor to mix it with, then use your hands and really work the mix in a larger bowl to break apart the brown sugar so everything is equally mixed in.

2) This recipe will yield a good sized batch of rub that should last you all summer! Just remember to separate the amount of rub you plan on using ahead of working with raw meats or other foods so you don't cross-contaminate your main batch! So when you are ready to start cooking, set a small bowl of your rub aside and store the rest of your rub in an airtight container. Or do what I do and put your rub mix in a freezer bag and store it out of the way on a refrigerator door shelf. It does not need to be refrigerated, but it will stay fresh longer in the fridge! But keep in mind, regardless of how you store the rub mix, the brown sugar in this rub will cause the rub mix to re-clump after it has sat for a few days/weeks. This is normal, just simply break the clumps apart and its ready to be used again!

If you want more spice, add more cayenne pepper! If this is too sweet for you, drop a 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Play with the proportions a bit and you could find your own personal rub!

The only ingredient you may or may not find is that Buck's Seasoning.. if you can't find it you can substitute it with more seasoned salt. And don't worry about the brands. The ones I generally buy are the cheapest dollar a bottle ones. Any brand will really do as I've never seen any major quality difference in a single spice.. I'm sure if my taste buds were better I could probably tell, but I'm pretty low brow. :P

btw, if you want to kick up this rub a bit more, substitute "smoked paprika" for regular paprika. Its supposed to give you a more grilled flavor.. I've never tried smoked paprika though, because its about 8x more expensive compared to regular paprika.. about $6 for a small bottle compared to the $1 large bottle in the pic above. I'll try it the next time I make a batch of rub though.

Also, I've made another rub recipe before.. as posted in this blog entry:

I've used it a couple times, but every time I've always changed or added something because it never fully worked for me.. my sweet and spicy rub is the best rub I've made so far. Its a definite keeper and I've now made 3 batches of the exact same rub with no changes.

      Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

      BoTW took Game of the Year award and its well deserved, but I'm also glad NieR: Automata got best musical score, because its very well deserved.

      Bestbuy and Amazon had some good deals on movies yesterday. Got 9 recent releases on blu ray for about $50. And I got a 4tb western digital external hard drive from bestbuy for $79.

      IFC had a Three Stooges marathon on Thanksgiving. After we ate, we watched that the rest of the day. I haven't laughed that hard for that long in a long time. Good stuff.

      My PC had an update and restart only option last night. I had no idea there was another 'creators update' for windows 10. It was the 'fall creators update'. Damn thing took over an hour to install and reset numerous times. And apparently I have a 'windows feature update' that I still have to do. I guess I should check my nvidia drivers and update them today too. I've been having some windows 10 crashes lately so hopefully this update will fix that.
