BBQ Ribs Made Easy

Oil your ribs and smother with Combe's Hog Back Rub for a sweet, smoky and warm glaze with a rich flavour.

This rub is packed with sweet, savoury, smoky flavour with a little heat; perfect for pulled pork and amazing BBQ ribs. Rub the meat with a little olive oil, evenly coat with blend, refrigerate overnight, slow cook on the grill.

We get asked about the name - a lot!  Twenty minutes from our location on Exmoor is Combe Martin, a famous little beach surrounded by hills that were once mined for silver.  The shape of the hill is known as a 'hogback', and there's the inspiration.

Sweet, smoky, savoury. warmth of chipotle pepper and a fresh herby lift.

To Use
Simply oil your pork ribs, pork loin or shoulder joint, completely cover with Combe's rub, wrap with cling film and refrigerate long enough for the flavours to infuse (overnight is ideal).

Alternatively make a paste by combining 3 Tbs of rub, 3 Tbs Olive Oil, 2 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar, 2 Tbs Honey and smother your meat.  Click here for a full recipe.

Allergy Advice
Contains known allergen mustard. Cannot guarantee free of other allergens.

Over time the essential oils, aromatics and colour of your herbs will fade and the flavours change. Though you may keep them for up to 2 years in cool, dark, dry conditions in an airtight container we suggest that they are typically best within 6 months of delivery. Please use by the BB4 date on your package.
