Ribs are a surprising versatile protein, providing a mild canvas for a variety of different seasonings. Whether you are looking for traditional barbecue flavor, something spicy and unique, or just bold and simple, we have the perfect rub for your next rack of ribs!
Traditional Barbecue Flavor
Pig Tickle: Our best selling rub, and also the very first blend we ever created, still has to be one of our favorite blends for traditional barbecue ribs. This simple seasoning combines all of the best flavors the make us love barbecue ribs in the first place. Plus, it just has a great name! “Tickle” you next rack of ribs!
All American Barbecue: If you are looking authentic Texas barbecue flavor for your next rack of ribs, then our All American Barbecue rub is the one for you. Sweet and tangy, with a smoky mesquite finish, this seasoning is the perfect companion to smoked ribs with barbecue sauce.
Memphis Rub: In Memphis-style barbecue, the Rub is the most important ingredient, aside from the meat. Often ribs are served without sauce, leaving the barbecue rub to provide all the flavor. Our Memphis Rub is a complex blend of spices and herbs that creates a spicy and savory flavor profile perfect for Memphis-style barbecue.
Honey BBQ Blend: This sweet and smoky rub is an excellent crowd-pleasing selection for ribs! Our Honey BBQ Blend is very mild, but still packed with tons of flavor, making it a great blend for everyone. Honey and smoked paprika, along with other traditional barbecue flavors, guarantee a delicious rack of ribs whenever you use it!
Bold & Simple
Beef Rub: Even though the name of this blend suggests its for beef, its flavor profile works wonderful on a rack of baby backs. Heavier on the pepper and a little lighter on the sugar, our Beef Rub creates a rich, flavorful, crunchy crust, called the “bark.” Also try this blend on a rack of beef ribs.
Black & Bold: Our Black and Bold blend definitely has personality! Not one to hide from your taste buds, this seasoning packs a black pepper punch! The fresh flavors of dill and garlic, plus a hint of cayenne, round out this delicious and versatile blend.
Top Shelf Butcher’s Rub: Smoky, bold pepper flavor, with a touch of sweetness and heat, make this blend the perfect choice for bold and simple flavor on a rack of ribs. One of our newest blends, Top Shelf Butcher’s Rub allows the umami essence of your meat to really shine!
Spicy & Unique
Heat & Honey: Turn up the heat on barbecue! Our Heat & Honey is the perfect blend of sweet honey and fiery chilies, with just a hint of citrus, all flavors that perfectly compliment pork. If you are looking for something different, but don’t want to stray too far from traditional barbecue, we highly recommend our Heat & Honey. Beware though, it does get spicy!
Caribbean Spice: Just one taste of our Caribbean Spice will have you dreaming of sandy beaches and sunny skies! Bright citrus flavor, combine with classic Caribbean spices like nutmeg and clove, and just the right amount of heat, make this blend one of our absolute favorites. Citrus, nutmeg and clove are a great addition to pork, so trying this blend on a rack of ribs is sure to yield delicious results. Again, this blend is spicy, so be prepared!
