Dry Rub Recipes
A rub is a combination of spices, seasonings and herbs that add flavor and texture to meats. The rub seals in the flavor of the meat, and help form a tasty crust.
Like marinades, rubs add flavor to food before cooking, however rubs provide stronger flavors than marinades, which consists of oils with an acidic liquid, such as vinegar and citrus juice.
Dry rubs will not burn on the grill the way marinades do, this makes dry rub for ribs or a pork roast rub perfect for meat that require long cooking times, such as pulled pork.
The best pork or steak rub recipe are often a combination of strong and mild spices and herbs that enhance the flavor and color of the meat without over powering the taste of the meat.
Dry rubs become paste when ingredients such as oil, crush garlic, mustard, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce or horse radish is added.
There are endless combination's of rub recipes you can make, the trick is finding a blend you really like. Start by trying some recommended recipes, than experiment by adding or changing a spice or herb to your taste and maybe create your own bbq rub recipe.
Rubs can be applied right before cooking, but applying rubs 1 to 4 hours before cooking and storing in the refrigerator, in a plastic food bag, helps the spices penetrate deeper into the meat.
The best way to apply a rub is to lightly massage directly into food, or sprinkle heavily onto meat.Dry Rub Recipes
