Ultimate BBQ Rub

A fitting end for the UBP is the Ultimate BBQ Rub! Finally we're entering into the BBQ seasoning, and while a good marinade is a must, sometimes you want a delicious, smoky rub to work into a juicy side of beef, rack of ribs, plump, tendet chicken breast, etc., etc., etc. This affordable make-ahead rub is a go-to and is sure to save $$ over the store bought blends.

A few of the great blogs that I've been inspired by:
