Pitmaster BBQ Rib Rub

Flavor your pork ribs like a pitmaster with this flavorful BBQ rub. This recipe makes enough for 2-3 slabs of ribs, depending on size. Make up a huge batch, and store it in the cupboard for future cooking. Before using the rub, I recommend either applying a thin layer of mustard or margarine on your ribs first. As always, keep a good barbecue spritz of 2 parts apple juice and 1 part cider vinegar on hand to spray on during the second half of cook time.
