Basic Barbecue Rub

by in Jul 2006

Yield: about 1 cup

Boston chef Andy Husbands (Tremont 647 and Sister Sorel) recommends this for indirect grilling (the sugar will burn over direct, high-heat grilling) and for slow-roasting meats in the oven. Use about 1/4 cup per pound of meat.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons kosher or sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne
  • 4 tablespoons paprika

Instructions:

In a small bowl, thoroughly mix together all the ingredients. The rub will keep several months stored in a cool, dark place in an airtight container.

Additional Notes:

Recipes were adapted from The Fearless Chef, by Andy Husbands and Joe Yonan (Adams Media, $16.95).
