BBQ Dry Rub

This recipe builds upon a basic Dry Rub and adds more complexity and bold flavors to your next BBQ pork or chicken recipe. 
Difficulty: Beginner
Cuisine American
Keyword Misc.
Prep Time 10 minutes


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons coarse black pepper
  • ½ tablespoon cumin
  • ½ tablespoon onion powder
  • ½ tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Combine all ingredients together in a bowl. Transfer to an air tight serving container (like a mason jar or other dry rub container). Will keep for up to a year if sealed tight and kept in a cool place.


This yields about 2 1/2 cups.  It’s meant to be a starting point, then add to adjust flavors to your personal preferences.
Make a large batch of this and it will be ready all summer long.
