Spicy Dry Rub Recipe

This Spicy Dry Rub makes a wonderful gift over the holiday season, as a housewarming, or anytime, really.

Mixing up a large batch of this dry rub is so quick and easy and makes a great gift for family and friends, neighbors, or even as a teacher gift – especially for men who love to smoke and/ or grill.

But, if you are like me, you’ll want to keep a batch of this dry rub in your kitchen at all times. It is so delicious and works perfectly with pork, chicken, and beef. It is sort of a do-all dry rub recipe.

You’ll use basic ingredients that are most likely already in your kitchen, but in just the right amounts to make the perfect spicy dry rub that you’ll turn to time and again for so many dishes and recipes.

Here’s my Spicy Dry Rub recipe. I hope you love it as much as we do!

    good recipe and the art of a spice mix is hard.

      Thanks, Christopher. Yes! Spice mix can be tricky. I always say to taste it as you go and make it your own by adding a touch more of the spices you love and less of those you don’t. :) Hope you enjoy this one.

    This will be great. We just started using rubs this past summer and love them although the pre-made are expensive in the stores. Making our own will cut the costs. Thanks!

    I have made a similar spice rub for oven-baked ribs, that is so good. Your recipe sounds delicious too, and I will have to give it a try!

    I love your site and the recipes I have seen.

    This rub sounds fantastic but can I use regular paprika instead of smoked?

    Making my first pork roast with this rub! Smells very good!! can’t wait to try it :)

    This sounds great – never used a slow cooker. Going to try your recipe.

    One question, My family cannot eat spicy, how can I do the dry rub without making it spicy.

    thanks,
    Edith
