    My favorite barbeque rub is half and half coarse black pepper and kosher salt.

    I used to make my own out of salt, pepper, granulated garlic, chili powder, cayenne and paprika. That is until I discovered Chupacabra Spice. I buy it by the 5 pound jug now and use it exclusively. They have a variety that is MSG-free also.

    Good stuff and I highly recommend it. Like Frank's Red Hot, I put that shtuff on everything. I normally grill about 5 times a week and it is great on everything!

    Good luck and God Bless!

    Thank you and Congratulations!

    My most recent A1C was 6.1- Down from 12.4 back at the end of December 2015. But that's on meds- Continuing dietary changes (revolution actually) and recently added exercise (the week prior to my most recent bgl test). Hoping to gain enough strength/stamina to actually light a bow drill fire! (Sheesh! :8:)

    Congratulations on the reduction in your numbers!

    I’d suggest you look at North Carolina style BBQ. They use a lot less sugar in their sauces and rubs. It is a different taste especially if you’re used to the tomato/sugar based sauces.

    Brittle 6 shot a day diabetic u500 concentrate here. Rubs are what u like as most spices will not hurt you the sauce is what can kill you all of my sauces are homemade now. I like a sweet tasting BBQ I know I know but if u use honey it don't hurt you and is actually good for a diabetic what I do is mix a couple tablespoons of honey and mix with a cup of apple juice and let my ribs soak over night in that mixture my rubs have salt pepper peperika dry mustard galic powder onion powder and add a little timer if as it helps my joints after I drain the ribs I rub them good with this mix and cook low and slow but I spraw them every so often with a spray bottle with apple juice it makes them tender and moist since doing it this way my sugars no longer spike on me since I went to honey I'll go up a few point but settle down faster hope you enjoy SgtB

    Old thread revival but I saw this and it reminded me of this thread.

    Winner of the comparison was plain old salt and pepper

    One of my favourite things is a basic Sichuan BBQ spice. It's really just salt, chili flakes and sichuan peppercorns. You can add in the other typical suspects like star anise etc.., but I don't think it's necessary. Being so simple with such potent flavours you have to experiment with ratios and also just the amount to your liking. Everyone I know really likes it when I just added a little bit to enhance the flavor, but it doesn't take too much to take it to a real "mala" level, which is just too hot for some. It is possible to do it ina subtle way anyone will, though.

    When done, just squeeze some fresh lime juice on top.

    The typical Sichuan BBQ way is to sprinkle the stuff on small pieces of meat afterwards, but oiling up your meat so the spices stick and have a chance to developp their flavor works fine, too.

    Thanks guys! We're working hard at reducing our sugar levels around here and this is really helpful. Much appreciated!

    I don’t know if it’s diabetic friendly. All my diabetic friends eat poorly.
    I highly suggest this. I peel the membrane, rub this stuff on and smoke it. I haven’t used anything else since 8697B75C-066C-44A7-81B1-66DAAB3FF8D0.jpeg FAB8A064-4032-4961-87B2-8F0E7D5F2CFA.jpeg
    Edit: The rub is sweet, smokey, spicy and savory. My description doesn’t do it justice. image.jpg
