Foodie Friday: Mary’s Favorite Memphis Dry Rub Recipe
Summer is one of my favorite times to cook because I can experiment a lot with different cooking techniques and different flavors. But since I hail from from Memphis, Tennessee, barbecue is in my blood and I always find myself coming back to my favorite dry rub recipe!
We’ve used this recipe on ribs, roasts, chicken, and fish. It is finger-licking yum! Whether you are smoking or grilling, it is delicious.
