A Honey BBQ Rub and Sticky Honey BBQ Sauce

Recommended Posts

I have been experimenting with a Dehydrated Honey Powder based rub over the past 4-5 weeks, (mainly to try & cut back on the sugar) Honey powder is a sweetener and I think it works well in rubs and it wouldn't surprise me if this is what is used by the professional rub makers in their Honey rubs. I have used it successfully on Ribs, Chicken (whole + wings)

This is enough to cover 3-4 good sized racks of ribs

Honey BBQ Rub

2 tbs Kosher Salt  
1 tbs Dehydrated Honey Powder
1 tbs Sweet Paprika
1 tbs Spanish Paprika Smoked
1 tbs Ground Black Pepper
1 tbs White Pepper
1 tbs Ground Coriander
1 tbs Chilli Powder
1 tbs Dark Brown Sugar
2 tsp Dehydrated Garlic
2 tsp Dehydrated Onion
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper

I am not keen on heat and use the Cayenne for other people, but the heat can be increased, depending on taste

I also use a honey based sauce (real honey) I found online to compliment it, with ribs (unfortunately this isn't so sugar free).

Stick Honey BBQ Sauce

1 cup ketchup
1 cup white vinegar
3/4 cup molasses (not blackstrap) I use pomegranate molasses 
3/4 cup honey
½ cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp chili powder (or Tabasco sauce)

Only used the sauce on ribs, goes well with the honey rub, but I am sure it would work with any rub. Quite sweet though
