Kansas Dry Rub

Kansas City-style barbecue features a variety of different meats, but the signature taste is always in the barbecue sauce. Still, every great Kansas-City inspired barbecue dish starts with a classic dry rub which – by tradition – is on the sweeter side. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own delicious Kansas Dry Rub at home:


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Use this rub to jazz up simple barbecue chicken on the grill.
