Bronzeville Southern Rib Rub

We developed this rub to honor the Southerners who moved to Chicago in the 1920s, '30s, and '40s. Among the traditions they carried north was a tangy preparation for baby back ribs. Whether you crave ribs, a pork roast, chicken, or duck, this dry rub brings the flavor down home.

Details

Many residents of Chicago’s Bronzeville community were African-American transplants from the south who brought their family recipes with them. Our Bronzeville Rib Rub reflects these delicious Southern-style rib recipes. Use 1 tsp of the rub per pound of meat. Shake on before cooking, then at the end to replace any seasoning that cooked off. In addition to making wonderful ribs, our Bronzeville rub is great on pork roasts, chicken and pork chops. For a spicy barbecue sauce, mix 1T seasoning per 1 cup ketchup or tomato sauce. Ingredients: Kosher salt, sugar, pepper, paprika, nutmeg, chiles, sage.

The best rub for pulled pork, period.

I am fairly certain that this is the same family recipe (also known as Galena Street Rib Rub) that went with two different companies when two groups of cousins decided to do their own thing many years ago. Galena Street, however, is no longer sold by the other cousins, so the Spice House's Bronzeville Rib Rub is your only source for this great classic of American cuisine, which is fine because I feel it was always better prepared and less expensive anyway, and I have consumed tons of both over the years. I have been using this for maybe thirty years and have never found or made a rub that is superior. As indicated, it is also superb on grilled chicken and chops, but really goes beautifully with lemon and garlic (with either olive oil or butter) when cooking them on the stove or in the oven so as to make a beautiful sauce with them, and to accompany with rice (I recommend Persian style basmati with a crust). This makes for incredibly easy and delicious dinners that you can serve to your family and friends for decades.

Beats ALL Rubs

Started making ribs regularly in the last month with my instant pot/grill -- "borrowed" sister's Bronzeville rub and blew through it!!! Tried some homemade versions after that and couldn't find anything that sized up. This rub is AMAZING!!!!

Super Rub

This is a staple rub for me. I use it on Pork shoulder and ribs on a smoker as well as my "lazy" in the oven country style spare rib based pulled pork. Rub the meat down with some lime to get some flavor as well as better adhesion. Great as a finishing sprinkle on pulled pork tacos as well. Wish the texture was a bit more coarse...seems to have gotten finer recently, (or maybe I'm just comparing this to Galena Street Rib Rub from the other politically vocal competition), as I have been using this blend forever. Great Stuff!

Love the blend

I got this bbq rub in two gift sets that I purchased for the holidays. It and the gift sets were loved by everyone. It really helps perk up weekly meals when you hVe different spice blends to change up the flavor profiles of hour meals. This particular rub is good on anything from ribs to salmon to just grilled veggies. It’s like the food is a blank canvas and we are the artists with these blends. Thank you
