Rachelle's Dry Rub Ribs

Rachelle Garner


After years of painstakingly working on a dry rub specifically for ribs for a friend who found out she was allergic to gluten (and could no longer eat her beloved bbq ribs). I have finally perfected my recipe. (It can also be used for steaks and chicken or as a seasoning).
