Worlds Greatest All Purpose Slow Smoked Meat Rub

Here’s the thing, lots of other websites SELL their rub and sauce recipes and that’s fine if they want to do that. In-fact we’ve even thought about bottling and selling ours too. But for now we want to share the love. Yes, we’re proud as can be about this rub recipe as a rib rub, pulled pork rub, salmon rub and brisket rub. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have had coming up with it over the years.

Since we live in the Pacific Northwest we try to dub all our food with some sort of Northwest name. So we dubbed this one “Mt Saint Helen’s Ash” – All purpose Smoking Rub!
