anyone try mixing a rub with a mixer/whisk?

i am about to make another batch of jeffs rub and it takes us forever to sift all the brown sugar to get the lumps out.  i would think a blender would just pack up in the bottom.  i am thinking of trying our industrial strength stand mixer with the whisk beaters.  any thoughts?

I use one of those old porcelain pill crushers.

A small food processor will work, just a few quick spins will work. icon14.gif

sucess.  i used our kitchenaid stand mixer and it worked well.  put the whisk beater in it.  way easier than sifting.  it had a few find lumps but no more than it gets doing it the other way and i apply the rub with a shaker can which has small holes that don't let any clumps come through. 


hope this helps someone.

Substitute turbinado sugar for the brown sugar, it won't clump, has the same molasses content and carmelizes at a higher temp than BS. JM2C.

agree with cliffcarter. and we also use a kitchen aid mixer. because hell it is usually a lot of rub at one time. plus it's a ton easier to do. especially when brisket is one rub pork is another and yet chicken another still.

I used a whisk until a few weeks ago when I realized both of mine were in the dishwasher and I needed to get some rub mixed and on the meat before going out for the evening, so I grabbed my electric hand mixer and was done in a fraction of the time--not a lump to be seen.


The only time I'll be using a whisk again is if the beaters are in the dishwasher. or there's a power outage...

If you use a sugar bear it helps eliminate lumps in brown sugar - I too like turbanado but this really does work
