Brown Sugar Rib Rub {A Father’s Day Gift Idea}

Well it’s a rainy one here today.  And for the last few days…it feels like we’ve been sopped in and stuck under gray skies for a looooong time.  It’s good for our farmers and our lawns and our flowers, but I am ready to bask in some sunshine.  And I’m more than ready to get my BBQ fired up again!  I think the only time we don’t BBQ is when it’s raining…so I’ve been making meals that I would usually serve in the fall…gasp!

I’m crossing my fingers for sunshine this weekend and for the Father’s Day weekend (and let’s face it – for the rest of the summer)!  It just wouldn’t feel like Father’s Day without a BBQ dinner now would it?  This year I will be serving up ribs for our Dad…everyone loves them, they are easy to prep and easy to BBQ!  Sounds like a great plan for dinner!


  But what are ribs without a good rub?!  This is one of our most favourite rib rubs ever.
I love applying this rub to our ribs, then baking them at a slow, low heat in the oven before I finish them off on the BBQ!  They always come out tender, rich and bursting with flavour!

Whisk

Brown Sugar Rib Rub
 
Ingredients
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 - 3 tbsp chili powder
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 2 racks of back ribs (see above picture)
Instructions
Making the Rub:
  1. In a small bowl, combine the salt, brown sugar, chili powder and fresh ground pepper.
Making the Ribs:
  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Lay the ribs out onto a cookie sheet lined with tin foil.
  3. Rub all of the rub mixture all over the top, meaty part of the ribs.
  4. Completely and tightly cover the ribs with another sheet of tin foil.
  5. Bake for 2½ to 3 hours.
  6. Once the ribs have baked, you can slather them in your favourite BBQ sauce, and finish them off on your BBQ at medium to hight heat. Cook them just long enough for the BBQ sauce to caramelize and the ribs to get at great smoky BBQ flavour.

This rib rub would also make a great homemade Father’s Day gift!  
Just prepare some rub and package it up in a pretty jar.
Add some of Dad’s favourite BBQ sauce and a brush for application, throw in some of his favourite beer and you’ve made Dad’s day!
