- Dried thyme.
These ingredients are essential for the recipe and must be accurately measured for the best results. Once all the ingredients have been gathered, mix them together in a small bowl or container to make the rub.

Following this recipe will ensure a delicious dish that will tantalize the taste buds of even the pickiest eaters.
Instructions for Making Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub
This is a great spice rub for pork and poultry. It’s simple to prepare but has a lot of flavors. You can prepare this recipe in two ways: mix it all in a bowl (which is what I did) or put everything into a spice grinder and grind until it’s finely ground. If you choose the latter option, be sure to sift out any large chunks of spices before using them in your recipe.
How Long Will It Take To Make It?
You can make this rub in less than 20 minutes. All you need is a small bowl, a spoon, and some good-quality ingredients. It will take 20 minutes, maximum. It’s so simple to make that it’s not a big deal if you have to go do something else for a few minutes.
You can prep your meat and let it sit out at room temperature for a few hours if you have to, but I don’t recommend it because the flavors won’t meld together as well. The only part of this recipe that takes any real time is letting the spices toast in the pan before adding them to the rub. The rest of it is just stirring and waiting for the ingredients to come together.
What Spices Are in Traeger Pork Rub?
The Traeger pork rub is a great all-purpose rub that can be used on pork, chicken, and beef. The blend of spices is what makes it so versatile. The spices in the Traeger pork rub are:
Paprika: Paprika is a spicy, earthy spice made from dried peppers. It’s used to add color and flavor to food. It comes from the same family of plants as bell peppers and chili peppers, but it has a much milder flavor than either.
Onion: Onions are a staple in most kitchens for good reason. They’re inexpensive, delicious, and healthy. They’re also versatile enough to add to just about any dish from soups and stews to sandwiches and salads.
Chili Pepper: Chili peppers are a member of the capsicum family, which includes jalapenos, bell peppers, and habaneros. People around the world have used them for thousands of years because they have many uses beyond seasoning foods. Some cultures eat chili peppers raw or cook them in their meals regularly.
Other Ways to Use the Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub Recipe
The Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub recipe is a versatile spice blend that can be used in many applications. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Rub it on meat before smoking or grilling. The rub will give your meat an extra boost of flavor and help prevent it from drying out. It’s especially good for pork, poultry, fish, and seafood.
- Use it as a dry marinade before cooking. Just coat your meat with the rub, place it in a plastic bag or container with enough air space around each piece, then refrigerate overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking to bring the meat up to room temperature.
- Add it to your favorite barbecue sauce or glaze for extra flavor. Just sprinkle a little on top of your homemade sauces or glazes before heating them on the grill or smoker (or stovetop).
- Use it as a dry brine for chicken or pork. You can leave the meat in the fridge overnight with this seasoning on it, or you can cook it immediately after bringing it in for better results.
Can You Use Traeger Chicken Rub on Pork?
Yes, Traeger chicken pairs well with pork. What does this mean? The same seasoning that makes your chicken taste amazing will also make your pork taste that way, too. The trick is to add a little extra salt to the rub, so it’s not overpowering when you apply it to the pork. You can put Traeger chicken rub on the pork and grill it. The flavor of the rub will add a lot of flavor to the meat.
Use your favorite method for grilling pork, but remember that you want to take it off the grill when it reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit (63 degrees Celsius). The time required to cook your pork depends on how thick your cut is. You should always use a meat thermometer to ensure that your meat is cooked properly.
How Do You Get the Rub to Stick to Pork?
It’s the same process for both. For chicken and pork, you can use a dry rub or a wet rub. The dry rub is just that, a spice mix without any liquid added to it. The wet rub has oil or melted butter mixed with spices. The wet rubs are easier to apply because they don’t stick to your hands as much as dry rubs do but you still need something for them to stick to.
If you’re using a Traeger pellet grill, then this means coating your meat with olive oil or another oil before applying the rub. If you’re using an electric smoker or gas smoker, then coat the meat with oil before adding the rub. You’ll also want to dust off any excess spices before applying any sauce (if desired).
Can Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub Be Made at Home?
Yes, you can easily make your own Traeger pork and poultry rub at home. All you need is a little time, some spices, and a grinder or food processor. A spice grinder works best because it will give you the most consistent grind. However, if you don’t have one of these handy tools in your kitchen, don’t worry. You can still use a food processor or blender to mix the ingredients.
