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.

      Well my dryer broke after about 15 years and multiple repairs I've done over those years. I had to buy a new dryer. So far so good. I was finally able to get my laundry done again and my bathroom no longer smells like dirty socks and febreeze.

      FML my pressure tank is failing for my well. Its getting replaced next week. Getting a new whole house water filter installed too along with some new valves and safety upgrades. Props to the well company employee for giving me the tip of hooking up an air compressor to the pressure tank to put some air in the bladder to get the system gimping along until the repair work is done. I miss public water. lol.

      This has been a busy summer. I'm almost looking forward to winter so I can get a break from all the lawn mowing and outside projects. Hopefully the snow blower I bought this year works good so I'll have alot of free time this winter to get caught up on things. When I've had free time I've been playing Final Fantasy X over the last 5 months and I've somehow finally hit 100 hours on it. Lol. Only took me about half a year.  I still didn't beat it yet but I'm at the end game stuff now with the monster arena and omega ruins.

      I got back from Ohio last night. My mom had a Remembrance Party in honor of my dad this last weekend. It was a really nice time. I'm glad I got to see so many people that knew my dad and talk to them about how he was a positive and/or great influence in their lives. The party was a bbq party too. My younger brother smoked 30 pounds of pulled pork and 20 pounds of bbq beef. I helped with the process. It was a great time.
