My Favorite Dry Rub

Tomorrow is America’s 237th birthday and most of us will celebrate with barbecue and fireworks. We usually smoke a brisket when we host barbecue events at our house. I was not happy with the dry rubs we would purchase at the store so I decided to make my own.

Dry rub

After much trial and error this is what I came up with.


  • 2 Tbs salt
  • 1 Tbs sugar
  • 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs chili powder
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • ¼ tsp cocoa
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp red pepper

You might be questioning the inclusion of curry powder. Don’t. It gives it a little twist that you’re sure to love. So tweak away and make it your own.

Happy birthday America.
