“There's a few copycat recipes for this rub that aren't close to what is really in there. This version is much closer to the seasoning they use at the 'Vous in Memphis and is from the site (highly recommended!) I like that this has less salt than a ot of rubs-- and you can add sugar if you like, but since we sauce our ribs, I don't need sugar in the rub. You can leave out the Accent if you have a sensitivity to MSG.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all together.
  2. For my family, I whirl it in a coffee grinder for a second, as they object to the "whole" seeds.
  3. This makes about two cups--enough for about 12 pounds of ribs. (It is not meant to be a thick rub.).
  4. Add brown sugar if want a sweeter rub.
