Finally, I wrote one down!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm really big into raiding my spice cabinet and throwing a rub together. What I haven't been big on is writing the recipe down so I can make it agiain/modify it. Now, for the first time, I finally wrote one down and it was pretty darned great! So far, I've used it on a fatty (see my fatty wellington post) and a brisket (see brisket & abt's). Give it a try, tell me how I can make it better or if it's just amazing as is. It's a pretty basic rub, but, then again, I'm a beginner at devloping recipes.

Brennan's BBQ rub

4T Brown sugar (packed of course, when isnt it?)
1/2T Salt
1/2T Celery Salt
1t Old Bay
1t Onion Powder
1t Garlic Powder
1/4t Cayanne Pepper
1t New Mexico Red chili pepper
1t Cumin

Rub variations


You might try adding an equal amount of fresh ground corriander seeds to compliment the cumin. Alos try testing/tasting using Ancho chile powder or Ground Chipotle chile powder, and there again there are the Chimayo mild/hot chile powders. I have a lot of compliments using sweet smoked Spanish paprika. Nuff said!

I'll have to give that a try. Not sure where I'll find all that stuff...Maybe a Vons around here may have it...It's not like I have a narrow selection of local grocers.

Sounds good. Rubs are great to play with. I like to just spinkle sometimes myself but I line up the stuff just in case it's a real winner!

Did the ability to remember you rub or think to write it down have anything to do with sobriety, i useally come up with my best rubs and sauce when i'm 3/4 chithammerd, my neibghor guy trys to slow me down enough to write down what i'm doing so we can duplicate/alter for the next cook.
