Savory Burnt Ends Rub

Like the name suggests, this is a savory rub for brisket or pork burnt ends. It means that nowhere in this recipe will you find sugar. This collection of earthy spices really brings out the deep rich flavors of meat and works really well with a sweet tomato based barbecue sauce. So, if you're in the market for a new burnt end rub to try, give this one a whirl.
