Mouthwatering Memphis Rub

In Memphis, the rub is considered the most important ingredient aside from the meat. Often ribs are served with only a rub and without sauce. This means that the barbecue rub has to provide all the flavor to make Memphis-style barbecue. This rub starts with a generous portion of paprika and then builds a slightly spicy but definitely savory profile to help you make the most of your barbecue. Our Memphis rub is particularly good on ribs, but it can be used on any smoked meats. You can also use it for ribs prepared on the grill or in the oven.
