Making Pork Rub

1 – Measure Ingredients

Using measuring spoons or weighing scales, measure out the correct amount of each ingredient.

This batch provides the right amount for approximately 2lbs of meat. If you want to store your rub for later use, scale your measurement sizes appropriately.

2 – Combine & Mix

Combine all of your ingredients together in a mixing bowl & mix thoroughly until fully combined. During this process, you want to combine so thoroughly that you can’t tell which seasonings have been used (no groupings of any particular seasoning).

3 – Use Or Store

Use the beef rub immediately by patting your meat carefully yet generously. Remember that rub adds incredible flavor to your meat, so be as liberal as you like with the seasoning.

We recommend using this rub on Smoked Pork Chops for an incredibly flavorful dinner.

Alternatively, if you want to keep all or part of your rub for later use, use a funnel to pour your seasoning into an airtight container. If you have a silica anti-moisture pack, place this inside the container to keep the rub fresher for longer. Store your container in a cool, dry place, and your rub can last for months.

Pork Rub FAQs

How Do I Store Pork Rub?

Pork rub is made of dry ingredients, which will store really well in a sealed container. If sealed correctly, you can preserve your rub for up to six months.

How Do I Season My Pork Chops?

Once you’ve prepared your pork rub, make sure your pork is defrosted (if necessary) and ready to be cooked. Thoroughly coat the meat with the seasoning and pat in to help the rub stick. Allow the rub to rest on the meat for a minimum of 30 minutes before cooking.
