It's still Monday, late in the day albeit, but Monday. It seems summer days get away from me and then all the sudden, I need to get supper on the table. This is my new favorite go-to rub when I don't have time to marinate or brine meat. Simple sweet & Spicy Rub for grilling pork and chicken recipe is made with 5 spices you have in your spice cabinet. The most flavorful chicken and pork straight from the grill with this BBQ rub.
Sweet & Spicy BBQ Rub for Grilling Pork and Chicken
The great thing about rubs is that you can add more or less of the spices to increase or decrease the amount of heat in the rub. So the basics for this rub are brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix them together entirely. The sugar likes to clump together.
This makes enough rub for about 4 pounds of meat. I used two smaller pork loins.
And just used my hand to rub the meat with the spice rub.
Then place on the grill over indirect heat.
I cook pork to 150 degrees and let it rest for at least 5 minutes to let the temperature rise another 5 degrees.
And then I sliced the pork loins up for everyone to enjoy!
MMMM, MMMM good. And wouldn't you know it, I have pork chops sitting on the counter waiting to hit the grill. Can you like we love pork in this house!?!?

a friend of mine turned me on to this same method for brisket. It was delicious! Can't wait to try it on pork too!
