REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Excellent results on ribs, brisket, and poultry. I like a rub with no sugar but I am sure you could add some brown sugar if desired. I do sometimes add some salt on my ribs along with this rub.

Great no-salt recipe for ribs. Came out excellent. No burning bar-b-q sauce to worry about.
