Peep's BBQ/Dry Rub

I have been experimenting for years on this. Everyone seems to like this version. I got most of the powdered ingredients on Amazon.

All ingredients can be adjusted +/- (or omitted) to personal preference

2/3 cup Brown sugar and/or Turbinado sugar
2 tsp. Peep's All purpose seasoning
2 tsp. Cocoa powder
2 tsp. Powdered molasses
2 tsp. Powdered maple
2 tsp. Powdered honey
2 tsp. Smoked salt
1 tsp. Ground Pepper
2 tsp. Espresso - Instant coffee powder (I use Medaglia D'oro)
1 tsp. Dry mustard
1 tsp. Smoked Paprika
1 tsp. Trader Joe's African Smoke grinder
1 tsp. Oregano
1/2 tsp. Tomato powder
1/2 tsp. Cumin
1/2 tsp. Dry Hickory Smoke Powder (or to taste)
1/2 tsp. Dried minced garlic
1/2 tsp. Dried minced onion
Adjust below ingredients to your personal heat preferences:
1/2 tsp. Chili powder
1/2 tsp. Chipotle chili powder
1/2 tsp. Ancho chili powder
1/2 tsp. Frank's hot sauce powder
1/2 tsp. Cayenne
1/2 tsp. Ground Red Pepper Flakes
Other Chili powders can be added or substituted
I sometimes add Ghost Pepper powder

Use on ribs, poultry, pork or any other food that you want to have a sweet, spicy & smoky flavor.
Rub food with mixture and place in a zip top bag, seal top and place in container in case of leaks.
Refrigerate several hours or overnight.

Also can be added to BBQ Baked Beans.

Powdered stuff is easy to mix together and lasts longer.

I got most on Amazon. A couple I got on spice sites.
