Well I was going to try the full recipe today, but decided since I still had a little bit of my own stuff left, I would just try drying out the apple slices and add it to my own stuff.
Apple drying came out great, when they cooled they were nice and crispy so I ground them up in my spice grinder and added the apple to my left over stuff. About a 50 - 50 ratio.
I have to say the apple powder adds a nice touch, I like it!
Gonna make some St louie's tomorrow, I'll keep you posted.
Oh and next time I'm gonna make the complete recipe.
Thanks.

Here is an apple rub that is good on ribs and chicken.

Pigs Worst Nightmare AppleRub

6 Tbsp Ground Dried apple
3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
3 Tbsp Turbinado Sugar
3 Tbsp Coarse Salt
1 Tsp Sweet Paprika
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
Tsp Ground Black Pepper


I made some of this and cooked a pork roast with it this past weekend and I must say it is an outstanding pork rub. I changed the recipe slightly to suit our tastes, but kept the ingredient ratios close to the original. I bought a small bag of dried Granny Smiths at the grocery, about 2.6 oz, this made about 10 TBS of apple dust/crumbs. I don't have a spice grinder so I beat the apples and then ran them thru the small electric chopper. Then I added 5TBS brown sugar, 5 TBS turbinado sugar, 1 TBS Kosher salt, 2 tsp paprika, 2 tsp ground cinnamon and 1 tsp black pepper.



The roast rubbed-


Ready to come off-


Delicious meat and bark-


This is an excellent pork rub IMHO. Great job Very Happy

I can't get apple chips to dry to save my life. I even bought dried apples and they seemed moist. Are you guys using apples that are still slightly moist or how are you getting them completely dry?

This is a great rub recipe.
I use a potato peeler to get the apples super thin. 4-5 hours in the dehydrator me nice crisp apple chips that grind to a nice power in the food processor.

What about packets of apple cider? Do you think that would substitute?

A long time in the dehydrator. Cut them thin to cut down drying time.

If you have a Trader Joes nearby, they sell freeze dried apple clusters. Throw them in a coffee grinder and you'll have some nice apple powder in no time.

(note, they fried my kitchenaid mini chopper. the sugars in these clusters cause them to be slightly sticky and my motor doesn't have the same pep that it did before after the blades got stuck on some sticky chunks. I think a coffee grinder would do better job.)

This sounds like a great rub. Gonna have to try this. Have used apples different ways when smoking, but never as a rub. Thanks for the recipe.

I was thinking about this while driving and these popped into my head. They are freeze dried and crispy. There two Apple verities. Fuji Apple Fruit Crisps and Apple & Cinnamon Fruit Crisps. The sell them online here. Look in the Fruit Crips section http://www.brothersallnatural.com

Here is their store finder.

Just thinking... instead of working...How about drying the apple leavings from running the apples through a juicer? I bet that would dry out well in the oven or dehydrator. I have a Benville Ikon juicer and it works great extracting most all of the liquid. I bet that would work Very Happy

Thanks Portergolf,if you're still around! I used your rub and Roxy's rib glaze in a rib cook-off Sunday (8/19/12 and gotta very nice 3' tall,third place trophy along with some cash.I used apple and cherry wood mix for heat.Thanks again for this amazing apple rub,it rocks.

BTW....For peeps looking for ALREADY crunchy apple chips,look for "Seneca" brand apple chips.They come in red delicious,original and Granny Smith.I used Granny Smith.These are truely apple chips,NOT fake apple flavored corn chips.

The wife had a great idea,she put them in a ziplock bag and ran the rolling pin over them several times. PERFECT!!!!!

I have used this rub twice now and I love it. My friends and I do a yearly Rib-Off, and I used this rub for our cook off on Saturday. I ended up taking home first place and a sweet little trophy with a pig on top, not to mention bragging rights for the next year. I know the rub had a lot to do with it too. I marindaded the ribs in apple juice and lemon juice for a couple hours before putting the rub on. Then it was off to the smoker with hickory chips and a root beer bbq sauce I made. They came out great. Sorry, but I don't have pics to share.

As for making the rub, it's pretty easy. I took a mandolin to slice the apples and just popped them in the over for a few hours, let them sit overnight, and then put them in a coffee grinder to get them to how I wanted. I love the taste of it and how the apple comes through, but isn't overpowering and not overly sweet. It's hard to see me using a different rub whenever I do ribs going forward.

Thanks for posting this recipe Portergolf, it's great!
