Chipotle Dry Rub

User Rating 5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


This spice rub has the great flavor of chipotle peppers. Just make sure that the rub is finely ground before using it.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Yield: Makes about 1 cup


  • 2 dried chipotle peppers (use 3 to heat it up a little)
  • 3 tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried cilantro leaves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground dry orange peel


Combine all ingredients in a spice mill or blender and grind until even and fine. Store in an airtight jar. Will store for about 6 months in the freezer. Great for brisket, steak, and pork.

I keep trying new rubs for a cook off I have with family and friends. This year I won with this recipe. I recommend adding the extra peppers. The heat is good, and not over the top. I also recommend doing a sweet chipotle BBQ sauce for the kicker.
