Some pitmasters go to the grave protecting their signature spice rub recipes. I’m not that big of a jerk and I like to share with all of you! I seriously love making my own rubs and spice mixtures for the grill and this Sweet Rub for Grilled Pork and Chicken is my all time go-to favorite. It is good on everything, I swear. From pork ribs to simple grilled chicken breasts, this sweet rub with a slightly spicy kick will enhance whatever you throw it on.
If you have the ingredients on hand, make a big old batch and bottle some up for later use or to give to your friends and neighbors as gifts. I can go through one batch just on a couple of pork butts, so don’t be worried that you won’t use it all.
Below, I’ve included links to several of my favorite recipes that are unreal with this sweet rub slathered on, so mix up some spices and fire up that grill! It’s almost summer!!
