My wife likes to make country style ribs with Ah-So sauce. I thought it might be fun to try smoking them with an asian style dry rub and then finishing them with the Ah-So sauce or maybe a homemade teryiaki sauce.

I did a search but there isn't much here. I am sure if you guys put your collective thoughts in this thread, a killer asian rub will emerge.

Thanks

Most of the Chinese/Asian seasonings are not dry as in Chinese Barbecue Sauce (Char Sui).
But there are the spices and such, Five-spice-powder, a seasoning mix of equal parts ground cinnamon, cloves, star anise, fennel seeds and Szechuan peppercorns. Then you have garlic, ginger powder, red chili, tangerine and orange peel. I would start with dark brown sugar and go from there. Here is a site, take a look see. http://asiarecipe.com/asianherbs.html

I agree with the Chinese 5-spice powder recommendation. It always adds a great asian influenced flavour to anything. Start by adding that your basic rub and look at incorporating things like more ginger powder as well and you'll be on your way!

Chinese 5 spice and a little curry is good to add to garlic and onion.

I like Singapore seasoning blend from Penzey's. They've got a lot of great blends at reasonable prices.

Thanks for the tips. Looks like 5-spice is the trick. This should be interesting...

Five Spice would definitely be a great addition to an Asian rub. Off the top of my head how about, lemon grass, palm sugar instead of brown, dried galagal (similar to ginger), ground Korean chili pepper, nanami tōgarashi which is a Japanese spice mixture, miso paste, tamarind, tumeric?

Hope this helps, let us know how it works out.
