Rubs.. for any kind of application
« on: March 07, 2010, 06:30:41 PM »


not including Aloe, nor Coconut oil..   


My rub tonight, mixed in the spice grinder would NOT allow anyone in the kitchen that was not sneezing.

I think it was the Szechuan peppercorns, but it may have been the sweet/smoked Paprika ?

It is all over now, as the dust in the air has settled..  but it was a funny thing that I had to hold my breath, run into the kitchen and turn the green beans off without breathing... 

I will provide this rub online as soon as we taste it and see if it passes the tests...

Sounds like it may have military applications...

Sounds good Mike!

I'm slow roasting two butts right now that I rubbed with a very simple, classic sort of rub:

Hungarian paprika
Dry mustard
Thyme (ideally dried, but kind of ironically I was out and had to use fresh)
Dried sage
Dried rosemany
Garlic powder
Salt
Pepper

All to taste. It is what pork roast "should" taste like to me because I grew up with it.

Have you been raiding my recipe files? I use just about the same ingredients except I prefer Spanish Paprika and a pinch of cayenne.

That does honestly sound good.  Way in the past I used to slather the pork roast with mustard of some kind before I added the rub.  I don't do that anymore and I think I miss that mustard flavor on some of my roasts.  I'll add it to mine next time.  Do you like regular mustard powder or what I used to use is the Sunbird Mustard powder from the folks that make the good curry powder.

It was good but didn't get as tender as I wanted, so I stuck it in the pressure cooker at the end and that worked great. It was a little salty, though. I'm pretty sure that that was due to Kroger adding some salt solution to up the water content. I hate that and sometimes it is difficult to tell if they've done it, although I suppose if I look carefully at the packaging they are required to disclose that somehwere on there. Really screws up the salt factor.

Almost all of our spices are YDFM, so the mustard powder was just generic YDFM mustard powder. I'll try the spanish paprika next time.

I was given a gift of an amazing rub.  I get to try a bunch of different rubs, but this one is DIFFERENT.

I don't like it on everything, but on some things it is off the charts good. It is available online, or local to New Orleans.  I'm very serious, there are very few like this one.

I got a few of them as gifts a few months ago and am just now getting to try these. 

Here is another one that is pretty dern good, but the Frere Jean is killer.
