  • Plastic Storage Container
  • Cup Measure
  • Measuring spoons


  • 2 cups Smoked Paprika
  • 1.5 cups Brown sugar
  • 1 cup Garlic Powder
  • 1 cup Onion Powder
  • .75 cup Oregano
  • .75 cup salt
  • 1 cup Ground Cumin
  • .5 cup Ground Black Pepper
  • .5 cup Ancho Chili Powder


  • Put all ingredients into a large plastic cotainer, I used old ice cream tub for this shut lid and give a good shake to mix up well. this recipe makes around 120 tablespoons and will keep in an airtight container for about six months.


I have used this rub recipe in all my pulled Pork dishes. I have perefected it over the years and I am very happy with the results. 
For say per kilo of meat use 2 tablespoons of the rub.
Rub in well and rest for 2 hours for meat to absorb it, then either cook overnight in a slow cooker on low, or in the oven for 6 to 8 hours on180 degrees
