Smokeman’s Favorite Rub

This rub comes from Dr. BBQ, Ray Lampe.  I have to say it’s my favorite, it’s excellent on everything.

Big Time Rub


  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar in the raw
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves (not powder)
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix together and you’re done.

Please note: This rub by itself is to salty for ribs, you’ll need to add some sugar for ribs
