Using a Rub for the First Time

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

On Thursday I will be using a rub for the first time. Naturally, I have a question. Will the marinade help keep the rub in place or do I need something like mustard to "cement" it down?

 

Thanks!

Personal preference.  Using something like mustard adds another layer of flavor.  But it's not needed.  The dampness of the meat of hold the rub.  I've only ever used rub on bare meat.

 

I would start without adding anything else.  Next time, if you want to add more/different flavor, then try using a mustard, honey, etc.

Yes honey is good i use honey instead of mustard but he is right nothing is needed.

A big help to getting a good answer would be as always. Give all the info needed . Meat Poultry Fish all get treated differently.

Looks like I'm doing brisket. I guess it's called the tip; it's definitely not a full brisket.

Olive Oil Salt and Pepper, I like on Beef

Oil is cheaper and easier to work with.  Mustard works well too.  Either is fine.

I just shake the rub on to the meat, it will stick just fine
