Whenever you are cooking, especially on the grill, there is one thing that I think you should always use. Rub. Rub is so versatile that you can sprinkle some on vegetables, eggs, and plenty of other food, however because of the word ‘Rub’, I do just that. I rub my meat(s) generously. The all American rub that I have been using is really simply to make and trust me, it is pretty killer.
- 1/3 cup course salt
- 1/4 packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup paprika
- 3 tablespoons ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons dried thyme
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
As you can tell by these ingredients, it is going to be great.
Store these in air tight containers for up to 6 months. Typically this rub could be used with 5-10 pounds of meat.
You could be creative as well and in a creative container give these as gifts. Stay tuned for my Rib recipe which blew the socks of my wife. It’s a good one.
