BBQ Belly Pork Rib with Home-made Rub, but we have successfully used this Rub on Chicken as well.

It’s super easy and delicious See  Beer Can Chicken for the rub.

Rub Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp garlic salt
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • Pinch or two of Cayenne pepper (if you like it stronger, use more)
  • Pinch or two of freshly ground black pepper
  • Finely chopped fresh rosemary (I used 1½ large sprigs)
  • 2 racks of pork belly ribs, depending on the number of months you wish to feed
  • VOO – Virgin Olive Oil


Mix all the ingredients for the rub and set aside
Cut each rack into 2 or 3 manageable portions.
Liberally paint the entire rack with olive oil
Now add the rub (a lot). Yes, use your hands, and rub it into the rack of rib and set it aside.
Fire up your BBQ and cook till done to your liking

As our veggies, we prepared 1 large BBQ Zucchini, sliced in half lengthwise and then into thirds.  Again, paint with VOO, and that’s it.
BBQ as is, till soft to your liking (we prefer it to still be slightly crunchy) and you have beautiful grid lines on your Zucchini.
When done, serve immediately, and grind some fresh black pepper over your veggies. ♥
