Hot n' Spicy Hog Rub

This is a good spicy rub to use on any cut of pork, including chops, ribs, pork butts and even a whole hog. Make sure to increase the rub recipe so you'll have enough seasoning for large cuts.

Cuisine American BBQ
Servings 1 Cups


  • 1/2 cup mild chili powder
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 3 tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fennel seeds crushed
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper


  • Crush fennel seeds using a mortar and pestle or spice grinder. It is up to you how fine of a grind you want for this rub. Personally, for larger cuts I prefer a very minimal grind, but for ribs and chops I suggest a fine grind.
  • Apply the rub to the meat, making sure it is well coated. Cook as directed.
  • Discard any remaining rub that has come into contact with raw meat.
  • If making ahead of time, store in an air tight container in the cupboard for 6 months.
