Dry Rub for Pork ~ Easy Dry Rub Perfect for Pork Loin, Pork Chops and More When Using Your Smoker or Pellet Grill! Slightly Sweet and Amazing!
This Dry Rub Recipe is perfect for any type of pork! We used it on a pork loin that we smoked in our pellet grill! It’s perfectly sweet from the brown sugar and white sugar with a punch of flavor from the garlic, chili and cumin. Yet, it’s smoky from the addition of Smoked Paprika. I seriously am obsessed with Smoked Paprika lately. I love that subtle smoke flavor it gives to a recipe! It pairs perfectly with this Bacon Wrapped Asparagus! Plus, you can start the meal with this Grilled Corn Salsa!
My baby is turning ONE in a few days! How is that possible? It seems like just yesterday I was anxiously waiting his arrival. Wondering if it was a boy or girl and if this blasted kid would ever make its debut into the world. I was overdue and not a happy camper! Every single one of my children were overdue. I say that like I’ve had fifteen kids. For the record, I only have three!
Why was it with my first child’s birthday I spent a ton of time planning the perfect theme, the menu, the location, just all the things. Then the third one rolls around and I’m all like throw a message out on Facebook, plan a menu the day before and overnight the decorations.
Honestly, he’s lucky he had any type of decorations. I’ve even started to not do those at birthday parties! A few themed plates and napkins and that’s about as far as I get. I feel like in this day and age with Pinterest and social media in general we are all trying to keep up with each other. Well, my friends, make sure you try to keep up with me. You will feel very accomplished as you watch me and my lack of party decorating and planning skills!
A whopping two days before the party I decided it was really time to nail down a menu. I had ideas floating in my head but there wasn’t anything concrete. The hubs kept telling me he’d do the main dish on the grill or pellet smoker. Finally, I was like, duh why not let him do that? I mean one less thing for me to do! Score!
I think making the meat for any party gives the man something to feel proud of. Meat and men, I don’t know what it is but they have this secret competition about who can out do who, or am I imagining that?
We had smoked a few pork loins before and used this amazing KC Butt Spice on it. I wanted to make my own rub for this pork loin, so I looked at the back of the ingredients of that rub and tried to make something similar.
It is not a true copy cat recipe as mine is a bit sweeter, but I love this Dry Rub for Pork Loin!
If you are like me sometimes the idea of smoking something in the pellet grill can seem a bit overwhelming. Some of those recipes are intense. That is not how I roll my friends. The easier the better. This blog will not have recipe with 59 recipes that takes 12 hours to make.
Think simple, delicious and easy. The type of recipe you can make after work or on a Saturday afternoon. Most of the time after work! This one takes a few hours because the smoking takes a bit of time, but it’s stupid easy. Sooooo easy.
This rub is the perfect rub to start with. It’s basic and you probably have all the spices in your pantry!
Here is how we smoked this Easy Smoked Pork Loin with this amazing Dry Rub for Pork!
