The original vViking’s BBQ Rub

BBQ without a good rub is like riding your car without a windshield, it’s not essential .. but not enjoyable either.

You can buy commercially available rubs in a store nearby. But if you want a better rub, you have to go to a specialized BBQ store (usually not nearby) -or- you just create one yourself. This is a basic recipe for a BBQ rub that I mostly use for pork (spareribs, pulled pork, pork belly burnt ends, etc..). It’s got a good kick (from the pepper) and is sweet at the same time. If you really like some spicy flavors you are free to add some cayenne- or chili pepers

Just a shameless picture of some prepare meat
