The Spice House Bronzville


We developed this rub to honor the Southerners who moved to Chicago in the 1920s, '30s, and '40s. Among the traditions they carried north was a tangy preparation for baby back ribs. Whether you crave ribs, a pork roast, chicken, or duck, this dry rub brings the flavor down home.


Many residents of Chicago’s Bronzeville community were African-American transplants from the south who brought their family recipes with them. Our Bronzeville Rib Rub reflects these delicious Southern-style rib recipes. Use 1 tsp of the rub per pound of meat. Shake on before cooking, then at the end to replace any seasoning that cooked off. In addition to making wonderful ribs, our Bronzeville rub is great on pork roasts, chicken and pork chops. For a spicy barbecue sauce, mix 1T seasoning per 1 cup ketchup or tomato sauce. Ingredients: Kosher salt, sugar, pepper, paprika, nutmeg, chiles, sage.
