Dry Rubs

I need a dry rub for ribs and chicken. I am a diabetic. I do not want to use any artificial sweeteners or any thing that is artificial. Low sodium or no salt preferred. I've been searching the internet and diabetic forums but found nothing. Would appreciate any help from you guys.

Maybe some of these will work for you. Maybe the Rendezvous-style Memphis Dry Rub or the Poultry Seasoning?

I wish I could be of help here. Not diabetic. No one in family to give me any experience.

I will say that low sodium is now probably a taste preference rather than a medical issue, given the recent literature, but it may not matter that much with dry rubs. Still it is hard to imagine a decent chicken product without salt.

To me, the main ingredients in dry rubs are powdered dry chili, mustard, garlic and onion, none of which should be a problem. Sugar has always been secondary to my thinking. And, pork fat is likely to send the dietitian into orbit as fast as a little ground coconut or whatever one might substitute for sugar.

But, when the OP rules out typical sugar substitutes, one has to ask how much is medicine and how much is self imposed limitations.

I appreciate all your replies and await more! Than you Wilson for your words. Regarding sugar substitutes that are artificial, I do not put them into my body. I was lucky to have eaten organic foods as a kid and my father and grand father were both in the culinary world. It is now surfacing that these chemical and artificial sugar substitutes are bad for your health. Dropped salt from my diet over 20 years ago. I became more aware of sugar a few years ago when I was taken to a hospital for a very high sugar level that was bring me in proximity to a diabetic coma. Self imposed limitations were always a part of my life. I do value what you say and appreciate your input.

well, maybe try some stevia or coconut powder. That should do it if you must have sweetener. For my part I don't use sugar only because I don't like a sweet barbecue. (Southerners please forgive me).

As for chili powder, I am not a big fan of paprika. Hatch or Anaheim powder and cayenne are good choices. I buy a 5 pound bottle of Anaheim and use it all sorts of stuff. You can get it here:

Here's a book of rubs from http://www.deejayssmokepit.net
Link to PDF: http://www.deejayssmokepit.net/Downl...BookofRubs.pdf

There are about 20 pages of rubs. Most have sugar & salt, but there is at least one without either and a couple that the volume of those ingredients isn't so large that they couldn't be eliminated.

Hope you find something that works for you.
