1/2 C Kosher Salt
3 Tbl brown sugar
3 Tbl Paprika (smoked is better, hungarian the best)
1.5 Tbl Onion Pwdr
1.5 Tbl Garlic Pwdr
1/2 Tsp Coriander
3/4 Tsp dry mustard
1/2 Tsp black pepper
2 Tsp Oregano

To taste:
1/4 - 3/4 Tsp Cayenne pepper

Mix well, and coat ribs with this.
- For beef, I'll typically cut the dry mustard and increase the garlic & onion powder (as much as double).

- If a wet rub is preferred (ie, don't want or don't have time for a real crust to form) mix with olive oil to make a thin paste (consistency of white glue). mix well and coat the meat in that.

Meat should be marinated in either the dry or wet rub for at least 2 hours, 8-12 is better.

Enough for 2 racks of ribs
