Uncle Pigfat's Bubb Rubb for pork
« on: August 12, 2010, 02:50:59 PM »
A slightly spicy and rather savory rub for ribs and butt

* 4 tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar
* 2 tablespoons Hungarian Paprika
* 2 tablespoons Onion Powder
* 4 teaspoons or 1 & 1/3rd tablespoon Kosher Salt
* 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
* 2 teaspoons Black Pepper
* 2 teaspoons Chipotle Chili Powder - this gives it more heat and a nice smokiness but regular chili powder is pretty good too.
* 1 teaspoon Ground Thyme
* 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper - adjust for heat, especially if using reg. chili powder.
* 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
* 1/2 teaspoon Cumin

***Edit:  Removed the Cinnamon***

I haven't tried this with a mustard slather so I'm not sure what kind of results that will yield.  I'll be trying it with a mustard slather this weekend and will update accordingly.  I don't go nuts with the rub.  I like to sort of see the meat through it after I've patted/pressed it in.  This quantity will do a 5 lb butt and a rack or 2 of bbrs.  I always give the meat a dry marinade overnight with this stuff.  It barks up really nice on my ribs and butts even when I don't use it liberally

I tried it out, and the Bubb plays really well with a mustard slather.

Did you see any difference in the bark?

It was more even and a hair thicker. Lighter color. Nothing profound. The flavor was good though.
