Default Sugar-free Rub

I've got some health conscious people coming over for some spare ribs this weekend. Anyone of know of a tasty sugar-free rub?

Sorry if this has been answered before. Working off my iPhone and I'm not sure how to work this app.

I'd be interested too. I am pre-diabetic/diabetic and on meds. I've gone cold turkey on the white flour/sugar and started running again (co-pay for meds is $113). Thus, I'd love to hear any recipes for sugar free rub. I've been told that guava nectar can be used in place of molasses and it's lower on the glycemic index.

Any info on this would be GREATLY appreciated.

Here's some help -- I'm genetically disposed to diabetes but control my blood sugar with exercise and low-carbohydrate eating (maintain normal readings, thank God). This started as a friend's chicken rub recipe and I've played with it for months until I've got it working well for chicken and pork. It would probably work for fish, too, but I haven't tried it. For beef I don't like sweet so don't have a problem with most beef rubs.

NO-CARB RUB
(Adaptation of Art’s recipe)
For pork and chicken

Give this a try.

Yard Bird Rub

Amount Measure Ingredient
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/4 cup kosher salt

¼ cup Splenda
2 Tbl onion powder
2 Tbl Spanish paprika
2 Tbl Chili powder
1 Tbl celery salt
1 Tbl fresh-ground black pepper
1 tsp freshly ground white pepper
1 tsp dried thyme

1. Mix together all ingredients. Break up any clumps. Store, covered.

Good looking recipe. Many people who are diabetic or cook for diabetics use Splenda in place of sugar, there is also a brown sugar version of Splenda that you can use in rubs.

Try coarse black pepper and kosher salt. You can add in some cayanne and garlic powder if you like. This is the basic Texas Hill Country rub which is used for spare ribs too. It lets the smoke do the talking. I bet you will be surprised at the results.

I have used this before with baked sweet potatoes and it tastes the same as regular brown sugar. How it will hold up being in a smoker for 6-12 hrs i don't know, but taste wise its right on the money.

I don't know that it would help you for this weekend but our Santa Maria Style Rub and Original Rub are both sugar free. You can check them out at www.therubco.com.

Thanks Ryan, I had not thought of using Santa Maria seasoning. I think that may be the test for the weekend.

That's because it's real brown sugar mixed with splenda. Regular splenda is sugarless. Not sure how it burns though.

I do not like sweet things and a lot of the commercial rubs - for my palette - were far too sweet so I came up with this simple rub and it is now my 'House Rub'

Onion Powder
Paprika
Mixed Dried Herbs
Celery Salt (I prefer celery powder, but celery salt is easier to get here)
Smoked Paprika 'Hot'
Smoked Paprika 'Sweet' (it's not sugary it's from bell peppers)
Garlic Powder
Fresh ground black Pepper

Sorry I couldn't get any pics, my camera is misplaced. I ended up going with the Weber Garlic and Herb seasoning. Turned out good, but I'll stick with a more classic BBQ rub for myself.
