Chicago Fire Barbecue Rub

According to legend, in October 1871, a fire that started in the O’Leary barn burned down most of Chicago. Because wildfires started at the same time around Lake Michigan, astronomers now believe the destruction was caused by the break-up of a comet. We packed all that heat into this tangy, complex barbecue rub that's truly ideal for ribs.

If you’re a barbecue-loving Chicagoan, you’ve probably rubbed elbows with Gary Wiviott or tried his legendary ribs. Folks are always happy to see him show up at a backyard barbecue, because where Gary goes, great barbecue follows! Like any great cook, Gary won’t reveal his secrets but has entrusted a few to the Spice House. We can’t reveal the precise ingredients of this BBQ spice rub, but we can tell you that it has a good shake of paprika plus some garlic, onion, oregano, thyme, a few types of chile pepper and a pinch of salt. This blend was previously called 'Gary Wiviott's Barbecue Rub.'
