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. This one is a great all-around rub for the new barbecue cook because it’s good on just about everything.–Ray Lampe
LC Barbecue Rub For Ribs...And More Note
We find this barbecue rub to be quite indispensable for ribs…so much so that we’ve not been able to bring ourselves to try it on anything else save for this coffee-suffused smoked brisket. We intend to change that one of these days. We, uh, just can’t quite bring ourselves to not make ribs or brisket with it, seeing as the combo of beef and subtly sweet heat is so darn good.
