RECIPE: MARTIE’S SPICY BBQ RIB RUB

Being from the South, you grow up around the grill. Everyone has their favorite rub, sauce, or technique when it comes to ribs. This rub is one of those recipes that is so versatile; you’ll want to keep it on hand all summer long. It’s perfect on chicken, ribs, Boston butt, or any other cut of meat you want to grill or smoke. Rub it into whatever you are grilling 8-24 hours prior to cooking. Wrap in plastic and put it in the fridge. Take it out about 30 minutes before you put it on the fire. Great for giving, too!
