Sauces and Rub for 4th of July

Happy Independence day, today I got up and made my rub and sauce for the rib cook I’ll  be starting shortly.

My sauce was pretty simple but out came out amazing.  It all just simmers while I stir slowly,  so I’ll just give an ingredient list.

  • 1 1/2 cup Apple juice
  • 1 cup coffee
  • 2 tsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 8oz tomato paste
  • 2 tsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tbsp spice rub

The rub I am using today has a bit less chilli powder because occasionally chili powder is a bit spicy and this brand was one of those.  I usually match the garlic.

  • 4 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 2tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp Tony’ s
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2tsp pink salt

Different brand seasonings taste slight different so make sure to adjust for what’s in your pantry  and have a great 4th.
