This is a great rub to use any time you're making a slow-cooked pork, such as pulled pork or any kind of pork loin. It makes about 1 cup of rub.
Simply coat the meat with the rub liberally before cooking.
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1½ teaspoons chili powder
  • 1½ teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly ground pepper

Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Store in an airtight container in a cool place. This step can be done several days in advance.
