JJ's Favorite Rub

I thought JJ's Rub needed to be here from the old site. When I started Egging almost 10 years ago, I really learned a lot from his posts & comments, and this is my go-to rub.

We miss you JJ.

  • 5 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 4 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 ˝ teaspoons ground savory
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 ˝ teaspoons dried thyme
  • 4 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 ˝ teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons white pepper
  • 4 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 teaspoons dried sweet basil
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 teaspoons ground bay leaves (If you can't find ground use whole)

Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend. If you use whole bay leaves blend until leaves are pulverized.

Rub meat and cover with saran wrap.

Marinade over night in fridge. Allow to come to room temperature and place in smoker.

JJ's is the best rub and we use it every time we do our babybacks!! We multiply it by 3 to get us started for the season. We have been gone from this board for a bit and am glad to see people still love JJ's rub!

I lost my JJ's Rub recipe and I was hoping against hope that it was here...and it is! It's been my favorite rub for over 12 years. JJ was the best and was always willing to share and help newbees out. Thanks for keeping this recipe in the forum.

I agree, this is THE Rub to use. I have tweaked it a bit at my house but I always have it on hand. I use half brown sugar and half turbinado style sugar. I also use an Italian seasoning as a substitute for the herbs, but add additional Basil and oregano. I add celery seeds and Old Bay, no salt. If something needs a little sweet kick, I add this rub because of the added flavor and the brown sugar. I use it in my mop (Apple juice, hot sauce, olive oil, balsamic dressing, Rice vinegar, Worcestershire ) and my BBQ sauce. This rub works wonders on ribs and pulled pork. Thanks JJ, we wish you were here to help us!
