Dry rubs are mainly used on ribs to amplify their flavour. I have used this same rub on chicken, ribs of course and even liver. Yes liver.

  • 2 tsp of salt
  • 2 tsp of black pepper
  • 2 tsp of smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of onion powder
  • 1 tsp of ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


Mix all ingredients together. (make sure that the brown sugar is well broken up)

As you can see, that was easy. You can store in an airtight container for up to a month. I’m new to using rubs. I found this one online and have made it few times now. Yes, I did used it on liver. You can make it spicier, sweeter, or any influence you want. I do recommend that if you use use spices like oregano and such, make sure that they are ground. So, have fun and make this your own.
