Sometimes I think I should have been raised in Texas, because I have a strong love for their style of barbecue. I love my barbecue to be sweet with a little heat.

Which is exactly what Texas Style dry rub mixes and sauces do best! If you’re not doing your BBQ this way you’re missing out!

Texas Style Dry Rub For BBQs. Perfect for Chicken, Pork or Beef! #BBQ #Rub #Spice

I often find myself watching BBQ Pit-masters, and get OBSESSED with barbecuing the way they do it. Low and slow, experimenting with different wood chips, perfecting a bbq rub, etc.

Unfortunately, living in an apartment makes my smoker dreams just that. I’ll always try to sneak in some smoker chips in the grill when I can.

Then I created this this Texas-style dry rub, and it compliments grilled and smoked meats perfectly! It’s definitely my go to BBQ rub – I highly recommend it for smoked pulled chicken.

This is very similar to the dry rub I used in my Rib Recipe (See Texas Style Ribs or Habanero Apricot Ribs). I’ve made a couple additions of onion powder and a little cayenne to add some heat to this bbq rub. It has a familiar “barbecue” smell to the rub coming form the brown sugar and chili powder.

When you taste it it has a sweet start and finishes with some heat on the tongue that really gives anything you throw on the grill amazing flavor!

If you’ve never used a dry rub before, you’re not actually “rubbing” the spice into your meat. Rather, you’ll want to make sure you just have a generous coating of the rub all over the meat. Patting the rub into the meat at most.

I definitely recommend saving any larger spice containers that you have from the store, or you can always buy new spice containers. It definitely helps keeping wasting any of this delicious rub to a minimum!

Prep

It takes a little extra time but I’ll break down the clumps with a fork as I’m mixing the spice together. Also, if you’re having trouble breaking it down, try using a food processor and pulse for a few seconds.
