Barbecue Rub #67

  • Yield 1/2 cups

This one is a great all-around rub for the new barbecue cook because it’s good on just about everything.

“After a lot of years of making barbecue rubs, I’ve used up all the good names, so sometimes I just use numbers now. Numbers 67 and 68 are a little tip of the hat to the band named after my hometown, Chicago. “


1/2 cup Sugar in the Raw
1/2 cup kosher salt
3 tablespoons chili powder
3 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground coffee
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. The rub may be stored in an airtight container in a cool place for up to 6 months. Makes about 1 1/2 cups
