  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika sweet or smoked
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk or stir until well blended.
  • Generously rub over pork chops, pork tenderloin, pork shoulder or ribs before cooking. For the most flavor, let the rub marinate on the meat for at least 1 hour (and up to 12 hours) in the refrigerator before cooking. This seasoning is also delicious on chicken and perfect for making pulled pork.


  • Recipe makes more than enough rub to season 4 large bone-in pork chops, or a large pork shoulder or two racks of pork ribs.
  • Store extra pork rub in an airtight container for up to 6 months in a cool, dry place.
