About

This is one of my favorite dry rubs for beef or pork ribs, but it works great on chicken. The amounts can be adjusted or even omitted to suite your taste. I sometimes add a little more or less sugar and will sometimes use powdered cumin if I don't have seeds. Depending on how much sugar you use it will caramelize and melt if you cook your ribs in the oven, but you must cover with tin foil so the rub doesn't dry out too much.
