Memphis has developed quite a reputation for its dry barbecue dishes. Hungry Gene's Memphis Style BBQ Dry Rub is very flavorful, made from a home made Memphis recipe and is meant to be used on ribs. The hallmark of a classic Memphis style BBQ is that the ribs are cooked for a long time until the meat becomes so tender that it practically falls off the bone. You can of course use this rub on beef or chicken as well.
Hungry Gene recommends that you use 1 tablespoon of Memphis Style BBQ Dry Rub per pound of meat. If working with ribs, be sure that after you've removed the membrane you coat both sides evenly with the seasoning and then rub it in with your hands. Now here you can either place the ribs in foil or in some extra large resealable plastic bags and then refrigerate for at least 8 hours before adding to the smoker. For best results, let the ribs set for a full 24 hours in the fridge before cooking.
Some cooks like to add additional rub for the last 15 minutes of the cooking time. Others like to make a wet rub and moisten their ribs with a vinegar and water mix before adding the rub. If you haven't done this before you can certainly experiment with both methods to find out which method works best for you.
