BBQ Dry Rub
In theory, I’m a big fan of marinading meat before grilling it. (Real quick…is it marinading or marinating?)
I mean, it’s simple, right? You mix together yummy things, you put them in a bag, you add the meat to the bag, you squish it all around and then put it in the fridge for the day.
At dinner time you grab the meat out of the bag and pop it on the grill.
In practice, I kind of suck at marinading things. I’m not a very good planner. Or, rather, I plan things, I just forget to follow through.
BBQ dry rub is a good cheat for when I want to switch it up every now and then.
That’s when I bust out the dry rub. It’s such a simple way to add a ton of flavor to otherwise boring meat. This time I went with a barbecue rub (the same one I use on these slow cooked barbecue beef sandwiches) and I had dinner done in about 20 minutes. Easy peasy chicken squeezy.
This would be good on chicken or pork. You could also try it on steak, but I think people who add barbecue flavor to steak are kinda weird. You don’t want to be weird, do you?
