Pulled Pork BBQ Rub

As stated in a previous post, I was lucky enough to smoke some meat for about 55 friends.  Here is the recipe for the rub we put on two 8lb pork rumps to make pulled pork sammiches.

NOTE: Go ahead and make this large batch and store it in Mason jars or any sort of plastic-ware until you want to use it.


  • 6 tablespoons paprika
  • 6 tablespoons pepper
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons salt


  • Place all ingredients in a large bowl, and mix well with hands.  Make sure to break up ALL lumps that may occur.
  • Rub the rub all over the meat, getting into every fold, flap, nook and crevice.
