I found this rub on the internet, and used it with short ribs the first time I have used it on steaks, pork, chicken, and anything that I want to cook on the grill. It sounds like it has too much cayenne in it, but it's the perfect mix of sweet, hot, and flavorful. I have never had any better than this, and I mix it in a big jar, so that I can use it whenever the urge hits me!
I hope you like this, Helen!
Carolina BBQ Rub 1/4 c. paprika 2 tbls. salt 2 tbls. granulated sugar 2 tbls. brown sugar 2 tbls. ground cumin 2 tbls. chili powder 2 tbls. black pepper 1 tbls. cayenne pepper (I use about 1 1/2 tbls)
Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container. Rub ribs with olive oil, then with the rub to cover completely. Cover tightly with foil, and bake in a slow oven (225-250 degrees) for 4 hours (I find that mine are done in about three hours).
Remove ribs from oven and grill over a medium flame for about 5 minutes on each side.
Baste ribs on each side with your favorite BBQ sauce for about three minutes on each side.
These are the best ribs that I have ever had! Mary in Oregon
