An excellent dry rub for use on pork shoulder, baby back ribs, St. Louis ribs and much more.

This is a versatile, slightly sweet, Kansas City barbecue dry rub that is great on everything from ribs to pork shoulder. I live in Austin, Texas and this is definitely NOT a Texas style dry rub. Texans pride themselves on being purist, which means for most BBQ, they like a rub made with salt and pepper. That’s ok, I like it anyways, particularly on pork.

This Kansas city barbecue dry rub recipe is my adaptation of a recipe by Steve Raichlen in his book, Barbecue Bible Sauces Rubs and Marinades, Bastes, Butters and Glazes (What a title?). Steve, in turn, was given the recipe by the Kansas City Barbecue Society. I have modified it for my tastes.
