Memphis Style Rub
Memphis is known for their "dry" ribs. This just means that the ribs are coated in a seasoning rub and cooked low and slow. No sauce. Just ribs, herbs and spices. This savory rub begins with a generous amount of paprika and extends from there with the addition of earthy ingredients like chili powder, a little cumin and coriander. While this rub is perfect for ribs, you can use it on other types of meats as well. So, give this one a try next time you fire up the grill or smoker.

Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Make sure to work out any clumps. Store rub in an airtight container in the cupboard for up to 6 months
  2. Apply rub over meaty portion of pork ribs or all over pork roasts and larger cuts of meat. Cook as directed.
  3. Discard any rub that has come into contact with raw meat. It's best to take out a 1/4 cup at a time, use that first and go from there. This recipe is enough for 4 slabs or ribs and about 2 standard sized pork roasts.
