Our Favorite Dry Rub, so good with pork, beef and chicken.

Are you looking forward to the upcoming BBQ season? We sure are! Make up a batch of Our Favorite Dry Rub, and you will be ready to light up the grill, and cook all of your favorite cuts of meat!

I had read many, many recipes for dry rubs. Each of them had great reviews and seemed wonderful when considering the various flavors of the ingredients. However, I kept coming back to the same thought, with so much heavy flavor from herbs and heat from the dried chilies; how could you taste the meat? 

So I came up with my own...and it was an instant hit! For our family, it is all about the flavor! We are equally divided around our table, half of us like a bit of heat and the other half do not. So I know and appreciate, that for many, it is about the sweet heat of the chilis. Fortunately, this rub is easy to customize!


For all flavor seekers, I hope you give Our Favorite Dry Rub a try. It is equally delicious on chicken, as it is on beef or pork. And should you be in the sweet heat group of dry rub enthusiasts, please, feel free to add in a bit more cayenne! Now that you have the main dish decided upon, may I suggest a couple of the following...

With grill season upon us, you may be looking for a delicious yet easy-to-make potato salad, like Mary's Potato Salad. Not only is this potato salad delicious, but you will be happy about the updated preparation using the Instant Pot. Imagine a potato salad where you don't have to peel the hard-cooked eggs...

House Brand Catsup and Whole Wheat Jam Crumble Bars, are perfect tp serve with Our Favorite Dry Rub grilled meats!

Or how about a big batch of our House Brand Catsup! Simple ingredients that taste great, plus you need never reach the bottom of the catsup bottle again...and let's not forget about some dessert. How about a big pan of Three Ingredient Nutella Brownies or a pan of these Whole Wheat Jam Crumble Bars made with your favorite jam. 

Aren't you glad grilling season has begun?

  • salt
  • granulated garlic
  • ground pepper

You will also need:

    1. Hi Sandi, thanks for stopping by! Funny we don't eat a lot of salmon (due to the cost in our area) but I think maybe a rub for some of the other fresh fish available would be nice. Thanks for the idea.
