Hi everyone !

I was just diagnosed with Kidney  Problems. What I am asking is does anyone have any recipes for rubs or just anything that is low sodium and low potassium. Or any suggestions at all.  Yhis is a whole new world to me, And I really don't want to give up smoking meats. So Any Help is greatly appreciated

Yes you can take the sodium down to a minimal. I would suggest taking a basic rub recipe and taking out or lowering the items needed and then add flavors that you like. I know several have done low or no sodium rubs and they work great. You can also change the kind of salt your using too.

Here is a rub that I use quite often, it's my variation of "Baron's No Salt Rub".

This recipe calls for lemonaid punch powder, but I've used cherry, lime and grape with great results.



(Dutch’s Version)

1 cup ˜Sugar in the Raw”
3 tablespoons New Mexico chili powder
1 tablespoon Sugar-free lemonade powder
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoons celery seed
2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon dill weed
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon marjoram
1 teaspoon sage

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Store any unused rub in an air tight container

Sounds like a great recipe Dutch, you could take it one step further & use Splenda instead of the Raw sugar.

That's true Al, but since I still have a goodly amount of Sugar in the Raw left, Ma says I have to use it up. One plus is my Doc would rather me use raw sugar instead of the white processed stuff.biggrin.gif

I have quit adding salt to rubs and sauces. About the only thing I use salt for is brines. You dont miss it after  a while.
