Memphis Rib Rub

This rub is great for smoking any cut of pork ribs, chops, steaks, or even a roast. It has its origins in one of the barbecue centers of America, Memphis, Tennessee, home of the Memphis in May barbecue cook-off. You can also use rubs on grilled meats, so the next time you grill pork (or lamb) chops, try this rub.

¼ cup paprika
2 tablespoons garlic salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 ½ teaspoons ground cayenne

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Store any unused rub in a sealed container in the freezer.
