S&P or Kansas City Rub for Ribeyes?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I have 4 great ribeyes I am packing on a cooler and taking to a friends to grill out with tomorrow. I was planning on pre-seasoning them and putting them into the cooler. I am wondering if I should stick to a basic Kosher salt and fresh grated pepper rub or if I should just put some of my Kansas City rub on them, which obviously contains salt and pepper. My Kansas City rub recipe is listed below:

 

½+ cup turbinado sugar
1/4 cup paprika
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon chipotle pepper powder
 
Thoughts?

Hello BBrock293.  My choice is salt and pepper only and I'd put it on just before grilling.  A ribeye is a great tasting cut and would be a shame to cover that taste.  Just my opinion.  Keep Smonin!

On nice steaks I just use S&P.  A good steak tastes good by it's self.

I'll third the S&P route! I would especially not put any rub that had sugar in it on steak, but that's just my taste.

S&P here as well (not iodized, Sea salt or kosher).  Let the steak stand on its own

I like to keep it simple, Salt and Pepper is all that's needed for a great steak!

S&P is the way to go for good beef; however, I sometimes use Lowry's Seasoned salt in place of Kosher!  It's pretty awesome.

To season my Steaks....I only use Lawrey's seasoning....nothing else needed in my opinion!

S&P Maybe a little gralic. Don't put it on to early. It will draw out the moisture.
