Memphis Style BBQ Rib Rub
Memphis has developed quite a reputation for its dry barbecue dishes. Our Memphis Style BBQ Rib Rub is very flavorful, made from a home made Memphis recipe and is meant to be used on ribs. The hallmark of a classic Memphis style BBQ is that the ribs are cooked for a long time until the meat becomes so tender that it practically falls off the bone.
We recommend that you use 1 tablespoon of Memphis Style BBQ rub per pound of meat. Be sure that after you've removed the membrane you coat both sides evenly with the seasoning and then rub it in with your hands. Now here you can either place the ribs in foil or in some extra large resealable plastic bags and then refrigerate for at least 8 hours before adding to the smoker. For best results we like to let our ribs set for a full 24 hours in the fridge before cooking.
Some cooks like to add additional rub for the last 15 minutes of the cooking time. Others like to make a wet rub and moisten their ribs with a vinegar and water mix before adding the rub. If you haven't done this before you can certainly experiment with both methods to find out which method works best for you. And for an added treat try basting your ribs with our Memphis Style Rib Basting Sauce.
Our Memphis Style BBQ Rub is hand blended from domestic paprika, onion, garlic, basil, yellow mustard, cayenne pepper and black pepper. We do not add any preservatives or anti-caking agents to our blends so that you get maximum all natural flavor.
