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


Dried apple is not available in a lot of places so you can make your own by doing this.

Take 3 apples, slices them VERY thin. Spray or butter a cooking sheet. Place the thin apple slices on the tray and salt the apples slices, add brown sugar to the apple slices. To dry them ourt put them in the oven at 150 degrees for 2-3 hours. They will not become completely dried out and crunchy in the oven, after it appears they are drying you can take them out and let them rest. I usually let them sit over night and they are very crunchy in the morning ready to grind up.

The rub was a great success! I made half the ribs with my regular rub and the other half with apple and people were fighting for the apple rub ribs. I was pretty proud of my new rub.

In my biased opinion they were awesome!!! Razz

Hi Portergolf,

I made some of your rub over the weekend. I had a mandolin slicer so I sliced 1 apple so thin that it was almost like paper. I had to layer slices of apple on top of each other for it to all fit on the cookie sheet. I haven't tried cooking with it yet but I will tell you that the rub is very interesting. My wife tasted it and wondered what the bitter after-taste was and the only thing that I could come up with us the garlic powder. Does the garlic cook out some or is it kind of bitter still? I plan on cooking a slab this weekend. Very interesting thought to grind up apples into a rub! Great idea.

Loomis,
I actually made 6 racks this weekend 3 withy my regular rub i use and 3 with my apple rub.

I think the bitterness your wife is mentioning may actually be from the tartness of the apples. You will be very happen when cook the ribs. There will be not that bitterness or tartness to you the taste.
Let me know how it turns out.

Hey PG,

Made up some of your rub also. I used it on some pork loins and some boneless turkey breasts. All I can say is WOW!! That should be for sale on a bbq site. It was that good. Thanks for sharing!!!

I will make some and let you know. I assume no sauce after the cook is done? I don't want to cover up what the rub is doing. I'll let you know this weekend.

Great idea Portergolf! Very Happy I think your on to something here. pears, apricots, the skys the limit. You may have revolutionized the dry rub industry. You better start botteling it! Thank you for sharing this with us. I can't wait to try it. I have a killer spicy apple bbq sauce recipe that would go good with it. I'll find it and post it for you.

THANKS!! I have been looking for an apple glaze, but this should do the trick.

Do a search for Williams Grilling Sauce. He sells spicey apple and spicey pear sauces. I haven't tried them yet, but they might go great with this type of rub.

Hey Chris,
See you liked that Apple Rub I brought to the cookoff in Shelby for the chicken. I will have to try this one out when I do some ribs next time.

Before I got my dehydrator I dried them in my oven on low for 2-3 hrs then let them dry out completely over night on the counter. Next step - food processor. Hopefully this helps.

What temp was the oven at? How long will it keep and how many apples? That would help more, HAHAHA

But yes a big help indeed!

My ovens low is 170*. I found three apples gave me the required ground apple amount. I used granny smiths and tried fujis once. Both very good.

My 1st batch is 1 month old
My 2nd batch is 2 weeks old

Both are still fresh sealed in air tight containers.

Can you buy "ground apple" anywhere?

I've seen "dreid apples" for sale at the grocery. Is this what you would buy and then crush up if there is no such thing as prte ground up apples?
