Did any of you see Throwdown with Bobby Flay? Plus another question...

  1. I am talking specifically the episode where he challenges Buz from Buz and Ned’s Real BBQ restaurant to a rib challenge. They showed how Buz seasons his ribs, which was a combination of some very basic ingredients, but they did not specify quantities, of course. Any of you have any ideas on how much of each of these items would work well together? This is something I would like to try.

    Salt
    Pepper
    Paprika
    Sugar (White)
    Garlic

    All of these ingredients were then mixed together and Worcestershire sauce is poured over it to make it a basting sauce rather than a rub. Then he brushes the ribs with it.

    I have no idea how much of each ingredients would be a good complement together. I’m certain they would be delicious.

    Maybe I should post this in a second post but I will try this first…

    Also, I just purchased Jeff’s rub. I was wondering if using smoked paprika would work just as well as plain paprika. What do you think? I have a big container of it and hate not to use it.

    I saw that one, smokin ruled the day there!

    Smoked paprika won't hurt a bit in the rub. You're gonna lay smoke to it anyway.

    I went to class or info spot done by Bone Daddy from up by Saginaw here in Michigan. One thing that popped back into mind he stated. He was asked the question about making rubs. He said I believe to start with equal amounts and then fine tune from there.

    I've read (Raichlen) and did a basic rub like this, the only difference was brown sugar vs white. White sugar is sweeter and doesn't have a molassesy (not a word) taste. Anyway receipe was:
    1/4 cup Paprika
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup salt
    3 Tbsp pepper
    1Tbsp garlic

    The receipe I have also includes:
    1Tbsp onion flake
    1/2 tsp cayanne
    1/2 tsp celery seed

    I first tried this rub and decided too much salt for me, so I reduced by 1/2 and substituted Chipotle for the Cayanne, and I used smoked paprika. Turned out pretty good and easy too.

    Hope this helps.
