How to Make a Homemade Dry Rub

If you’re new to making dry rubs, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Start with our Homemade Basic Dry Rub recipe, which lays out the fundamentals of a good simple dry rub. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can move on to this more advanced recipe.

Ingredients For a Dry Rub

The secret to a flavorful dry rub lies in the perfect combination of spices. Our Ultimate Dry Rub for Pork and Chicken includes:

  • Brown Sugar
  • Kosher Salt
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Coarse Black Pepper
  • Cumin
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Cayenne Pepper

We use a 1:1 ratio of sugar to everything else. That means one cup of sugar and one cup of the other spices. It’s as simple as that!

The Three S’s: Sweet, Savory, and Spice

When it comes to dry rubs, balance is key. We aim to achieve the perfect blend of sweet, savory, and spice. The sweetness comes from brown sugar, which helps create a caramelized crust on the meat. To balance the sugar, we add savory ingredients like salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and more. And of course, a little kick of spice with cayenne pepper or dried chipotle.

The Ultimate Dry Rub for Pork and Chicken

Our Ultimate Dry Rub for Pork and Chicken is truly the best. It’s our go-to rub for most pork dishes and even works great on chicken (as long as you cook it low and slow). The recipe has gained popularity on the internet, with millions of views and rave reviews.

A Note About Salt

Salt is a subjective taste, and the type of salt you use matters. We recommend using Diamond Crystal or Jacobsen kosher salt for the best results. Avoid using iodized table salt, as it can have a different weight and affect the flavor. If you’re unsure, start with a small amount of salt and adjust to your taste preferences. And remember, if you add too much salt, you can balance it out with a little extra sugar.
