Kansas City Kryptonite Rub

Kansas City Kryptonite Rub

Kansas City Kryptonite Rub is a rub I came across about 6 or 7 years ago. It has great flavor when paired with poultry or beef. I really like it on chicken or tri-tip.

Give it a try, and let me know what you think.

Kansas City Kryptonite Rub:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix throughly, or place in a container with a lid and shake well for about 1 minute.

When using this rub, sprinkle a good amount on the meat and allow the meat to sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours to give the rub time to penetrate the meat. If possible allow the meat to sit overnight.




About Pigskin Barbeque 80 Articles
Just a regular guy who loves to barbeque. Married father of two. I developed a love for grilling as a child watching my dad grill. My love for BBQ, using wood and the "low & slow" method came after I purchased my first horizontal smoker in my 20's.


  1. I tried this today, used sea salt but it was very salty tasting, I should have used less since it was ground like table salt and not course. I am going to make another batch and give it a go again.

  2. Pigskin Barbeque My first try was on some beef ribs, and the one other thing that I did that I forgot about was that all I had sugar wise was unrefined, I have since gotten some plain white sugar. The flavors were good just to salty and I really like salt. I recommended this to someone on one of the BBQ pages on facebook.

  3. Pigskin Barbeque I will do that, on a side note where are you from, area wise? Oh and I just liked your FB page, Number 200.

  4. I used this on a nice rack of baby backs & loved the bite it had. After reading the reviews I DID only use 1/4 cup TABLE salt, rather than the 1/2 cup coarse. I would use it again, but only when I want something with some heat. Good stuff.

  5. Glad you liked it. I need to go in and change the recipe from course salt to Kosher salt as that's what it calls for.
    Good thing you cut back on the table salt because if you hadn't it would have been salty!
