Tennessee Smoky Spice Rub

My husband loves barbecue ribs, especially the American style ones. The latest rub he’s been using is a Tennessee style smoky spice rub. The smoked hickory flavour is key to this and can be achieved in two ways – through a hickory smoke powder or with chips while barbecuing. This spice rub uses the smoke powder, which you can buy online. I bought mine at Chile Mojo (no affiliation).

1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp smoked paprika powder
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp Chilli powder
1 tbsp black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp mustard powder
2 tsp hickory smoke powder

Just mix everything and store in a jar. Use liberally on some ribs and barbecue away!
