Extreme BBQ Beef Rub

This beef seasoning isn't overly spicy, but it does have an extreme level of flavor that just goes well with beef. Here's the recipe...

Beef Dry Rub Ingredients

3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup fine grain canning or pickling salt
1/4 cup garlic powder
1/4 cup paprika
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon powdered mustard
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground red pepper


Combine all of the ingredients, mixing thoroughly. Store in a tight sealing container, in the refrigerator for up to one month. Freeze for long term storage.

When using this beef rub on thicker cuts like briskets and roasts, don't be afraid to pile it on. On thinner cuts, be a little light handed on the application so as not to overwhelm the taste buds. Because of the sugar in the rub, don't use on beef that's grilled over direct heat.
