I've made my own spice mixes for years by looking at the ingredients on Penzey's spices.
When making Memphis Style Ribs, it's all about the dry rub. The rub of pepper and spices is your source of flavor since this is a rib that doesn’t rely on a BBQ sauce. A light mop sauce of vinegar is most often used during cooking, but I like to use apple juice. via @keviniscooking
