Homemade BBQ Spice Rub

The best homemade BBQ pork recipe for pulled pork, ribs, roast, or other cuts of meat. Simple and easy recipe that's great for gifts and stores well. Could be used for any meat including chicken. Includes brown sugar.

When I was gluten-free, we made most of our own spice blends and spice rubs because a lot of pre-made ones have gluten added (for reasons I do not understand). Now, I'm not gluten-free specifically, but we prefer the flavor of the homemade mixes and continue to make and use them.

We do like a couple of spice mixes from The Pampered Chef (Italian Seasoning, Cinnamon Plus Spice Blend, and the Garlic & Peppercorn Rub), but for the rest of our mixes, it's all homemade.

This particular spice rub is perfect on almost all meat. If you can put it on the grill (the gas grill or the George Foreman grill), you can apply this rub with some olive oil and come out with perfection. It works really well on pork ribs or chops of course, but it also goes really nicely with chicken, salmon, and even beef.
