All-Purpose Barbecue Rub

Home | Recipes | A

  • 2 tb Ground cumin
  • 2 tb Chile powder; (mild)

  • 1 ts Cayenne pepper powder
  • 1/2 ts Ground cloves


Mix all ingredients in small bowl.
Makes 1 cup.
This rub, adapted from Big Flavors of the Hot Sun (Morrow, 1994), is a little sweet, a little hot, with just a hint of clove. It can be used on
just about anything that you plan to barbecue, that is, to cook over low, indirect heat for a long period of time. For large red-meat roasts, such
as leg of lamb or standing rib, increase the cayenne pepper from one teaspoon to one tablespoon and substitute one teaspoon cinnamon for the ground cloves.
