Shipwreck Sweet Pork Dry Rub

Pirate Island Hotel


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 4 teaspoons onion powder
  • 4 teaspoons chile powder
  • 4 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes

Chef notes

This easy rub has it all: Brown sugar makes it perfectly sweet, red pepper flakes and chile powder add a nice heat and the garlic and onion powders give it a great savory note.

Swap option: Even though this rub was made with pork in mind, it's also great on chicken.


In a small bowl, combine all ingredients thoroughly until well-mixed, breaking apart any clumps of brown sugar.

Use the rub to cook your favorite pork cuts like pork butt, shoulder or ribs. The rub will last for up to 30 days in an airtight container.
