  • Perfect Crust Formation: Slow smoking pork with this rub is key to achieving a perfectly caramelized crust that locks in juices and adds texture to your barbecue.
  • Versatility: Our rub can be used on various cuts of pork, from ribs to tenderloins, and even in other cooking methods beyond grilling.

Tips for the Perfect BBQ with Sweet Pork BBQ Rub

  • Prepping Your Meat: Large cuts of meat can take a lot of seasoning. When prepping pork shoulder for example, we cover the entire cut of protein. If you're in a rush, add a binder like yellow mustard or olive oil to allow your sweet pork BBQ rub to adhere to the protein better. For best results, allow the rub to sit on the protein in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Grilling Techniques: This rub contains sugar – it is recommended you do not use this recipe for high-heat grilling. When rubs containing sugars are cooked over high heat, they can create a bitter taste. This BBQ rub is perfect for slow-smoked dishes.
  • Pairings and Side Dishes: We highly recommend you check out the following recipes; using this pork rub to make the perfect Pork Brisket or Pork Belly Burnt Ends will yield incredible results.
