General All Purpose BBQ Rub
Prep time
Total time
If you'd like to make your own rub instead of using my SYD Competition rub, here's my recipe for a pretty decent all purpose BBQ rub.

If you'd like to try my actual competition rub, you can purchase it here for a better shipping rate than Amazon where it is also sold. Get my SYD Hot Competition rub if you plan to compete as that's what I used to win 30+ Grand Championships. Just add some MSG to my hot rub and you will have a winning secret rub. Use 1 tsp to 18 tsp of my SYD Hot Competition Rub.
