I was sitting around one morning and decided that I wanted to come up with my own rib rub and sauce. I went through the pantry and refrigerator and put these together based on my tastes and experience with barbecue. They both have just a little kick to them, but the sauce also has a deep, sweet edge as well. The rub is actually used in the sauce so they compliment each other perfectly. The dry rub makes enough for at least 4 racks of ribs, but will keep. The sauce makes about 2 cups. I smoke my ribs in a Weber bullet smoker, but you can of course cook yours as you like.

In a dry skillet, toast together the first six rub ingredients until fragrant, then grind in a spice grinder or coffee mill and mix with remainder of rub ingredients. Seal and store.
Add all sauce ingredients to small saucepan, bring to a boil then simmer for 15-20 minutes.

I like to rub my ribs at least 4 hours before cooking.
As stated, I cook mine on a Weber bullet for about 4 hours at (as close to as I can maintain) 225 degrees.
When the ribs are done, I finish them with sauce on my gas grill. Enjoy!
