    Ask A Chef: A Rub for Pork Ribs

    I’m going to smoke pork ribs. Do you have any good rub recipes? – Derrick

    Derrick, my go-to rub combines a base of yellow deli mustard upon which a sprinkling of brown sugar and spice is added. It may sound weird in applications other than a hotdog, but the acid in the deli mustard helps to tenderize the meat and cut through the fatty pork. Here’s the recipe for one rack of ribs.

    Ingredients
    ¼ cup yellow deli mustard
    ¼ cup brown sugar
    1 tablespoon cumin
    2 teaspoons coriander
    1½ teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    ½ teaspoon onion powder
    ½ teaspoon garlic powder
    Pinch cayenne pepper

    Directions
    Rub the ribs with the a thin coating of the deli mustard.

    Mix together the sugar and spices then sprinkle this mixture all over the ribs.

    Smoke at a low heat, 200 to 225 degrees Fahrenheit, for 4 to 5 hours. Assume the ribs will take roughly an hour per pound, so a 4 pound rack will take 4 hours to achieve tender meat that still has some meaty chew to it.
