Powderpuff Rib Rub

This is just great stuff from Steven Raichlen and his book “Barbecue Bible: Sauces Rubs and Marinades”.  We’ve used this rub so many times when preparing ribs, and the taste is just out of this world.  Garlic and paprika lend a savory flavor to the meat when we put the rib on the day before, but I think it’s the celery salt that puts it over the top.  You just can’t go wrong with this rub when you’re preparing ribs.


  • 1/2 cup celery salt
  • 1/3 cup paprika
  • 1/3 cup dried garlic flakes
  • 3 tbsp freshly ground black pepper


Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir or whisk to mix.  Transfer to a jar, cover, and store away from heat and light.  The rub will keep for several months.

Makes 1 cup
