Who Loves Ya Baby-Back? isn’t just a tasty way to prepare meaty, juicy baby back ribs, but it’s also a versatile rub recipe that you can use on virtually any protein. We have used the rub from this recipe on chicken, shrimp, various cuts of pork and beef. Fish might be the only thing we haven’t tried it on, but then again, I think it would be great on salmon. It’s a little bit sweet, a little bit salty, and a tiny bit spicy. It’s also an incredibly forgiving recipe. We don’t have the jalapeno seasoning that this calls for, so we add some extra cayenne and throw in a bit of paprika as well. We make big batches of the rub and keep it in the pantry sealed in a container. I find that “times four” is a nice, round number. For crock-pot pulled pork, rub your pork butt with the rub 24 hours before you want to cook it, and add 1 tablespoon of liquid smoke in your crock-pot. Cook on low for 8 hours.
