Tried some new rubs.....

27 posts in this topic

I make my own rubs, but I needed something different. Think I've tried most of them out there, some are good, others mostly salt and garlic it seems. BUT.....I bought two a few weeks ago that I have to give the "thumbs up" to...Weber Smokey Mesquite and Weber Carne Asada. The mesquite went on my CSR's last week, danged good stuff! Even better mixed with Reb's Rib Rub. Put the Carne Asada on some thick pig chops....this stuff is great. I'm hooked. Can taste the lime and other spices. I recommend them, guys! For what that's worth! :)

I need to try something else and one of these just might do the trick, Most time on ribs I just use my Head Country rub. Tried some cajun on chops last night but did not feel much of the flavor came out.

I've got a couple Cajun rubs, don't care for them. The Carne Asada was really good...like the lime in it. It would be great on pig chops like I had paired with some mexican beans and rice. :P

Carne Asada is beef steak, so you are going for fusion or something by putting it on pork........

Ya know, I do not really like that McCormick's Cajun powder real well, have a big bottle of it. I do love my blade steaks, however. I have my buddy Rob cut them 1 1/4" thick for me, then I smoke with plenty of BBQ sauce on them. Prefer those over all ribs and chops any day. Soft & juicy...ummmm. I've been eating those like that for 20 years. Always was my favorite. I like the bit of marbling (aka fat) that's in and on them. Gives 'em flavor. ;)

Call me old school and call me later for the discussion, but I'm huge on cooking over wood. I might go thru many bags of charcoal through out the year but it really doesn't matter in my opinion what one might use for seasoning. Cooking over hard wood is about as good as it gets. I have to admit I've gone through several big containers of mesquite seasoning  from Costco on fried taters or whatever but I'll take a non seasoned chunk of cow, pig or chicken on the pit over an high heat searing gas  grill any day..seasoning, what seasoning.

I realize the thread took a turn from the original post but I do have a rub that you can give a try.  It's easy and works on meat, pork and chicken.  Give it a whirl next time you feel adventurous.

  • 4 Parts kosher salt (Diamond Crystal) *See Note
  • 3 Parts brown sugar
  • 1 Part sweet paprika
  • 1 Part smoked paprika
  • 1 Part cayenne pepper

For chicken I reduce the salt by 1 part.

*Note: Not all kosher salts are the same. Diamond Crystal is half as salty by weight as Morton's.  So if this rub seems too salty and you’re using Morton’s either reduce the amount or try Diamond Crystal.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
