“Mama’s Meat Rub” This rub is easy and quick to make. I like that fact that I can use it on such a wide variety of meats. I add this to everything from my burgers to the ribs I smoke in the pit. It’s a great tasting rub that also brings out the best in the meat you are grilling or smoking.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup paprika
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
Mix brown sugar, paprika, black pepper, salt, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Stir until the blend is even like the picture below. Store in an airtight container and enjoy.
