Rub Essentials: Beef, Pork, Chicken Dry Rub

Andy Anderson !


This dry rub is excellent for beef chicken and pork. It’s a great rub for your smoker, or grill, and will even work well in your oven.

I’ve tweaked it over the years, and this is the current evolution of this rub. So yummy.

When you bake or smoke with this rub, the sugars give the finished dish a nice caramelized flavor.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
