I am having a BBQ on Monday and One of my guests has health issues and is on a very low salt diet and I need to make up some ribs for him without salt on them.

I found this one but Im not to sure about the honey

No Salt Rib Rub for Honey Coated Ribs - There is no salt in this rub, no sugar either. All the sweet comes at the end.


3 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon ground basil
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon red pepper
1 tablespoon mustard powder

Warmed honey

Combine all the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Brush ribs with warm honey about 10 minutes before ribs come off the pit.

Try using lemonade powder to replace some or all of the salt in a recipe. I will divide the salt portion into half salt, half lemonade.
