Rub Sticker: Worcestershire sauce
By using the ingredients from the white sugar through the dry mustard, you’ll get a Kansas City-style sweet rub. If you add the cayenne pepper and cumin, you’ll get a Southwest-style spicy rub.
Just mix it all together and keep in an airtight container. Save unused rub for future use.
Mop the ribs with the Worcestershire sauce to get them moist. Add the rub and coat it thick on both sides. Cover with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate overnight.
Fire up your grill or smoker the next day and put the ribs on the heat when you have it going just right.
If you’re as good at this as Bill Robinson, you’ll be able to slip the bones out of the ribs and never need a knife. I’m pretty sure you won’t be able to get Bill to tell you his secrets, but if you want to try, his phone number is 765-962-8069.
