Big Jim's Barbecue Rub

(cisco tx.)

First things first. We buy onion, garlic, chili powders and coarse ground black pepper in the 6 to 11 oz shakers. (I have saved at least one with the labels removed to store and use for my rub.)

This rub is rather strong so I lightly sprinkle meat but with good coverage all the way around. give it a try and let me know. thanks Jim.

Yield:- ¾ cup or 175g

Preparation Time:- 5 minutes

Cooking Time:- n/a

Total Time:- 5 minutes


Mix up the ingredients and you're ready to go. If you want to save some for another day then just pour the remainder into an airtight container.

Paul's Comments:-

Thanks for the recipe Jim. After looking at the list of ingredients I took your advice and only sprinkled it on sparingly.

I made it up and used it on chicken - really good and very spicy!

I had some chicken thighs and drumsticks that I took the skin off and sprinkled on your rub. I left them for 30 minutes before cooking so that the rub had time to work itself into the flesh of the chicken.

I then popped them on the grill for about 30 minutes, turning at the halfway stage.

That same 30 minutes later I was sitting down with a delicious feast and a glass of chardonnay. Lunches don't get better than this!
