Rubs Are for When You Barbecue, Not Grill
A rub is a mix of seasonings to create a delicious spice mix that you put on your meat before you cook it.
Did you know that rubs are for BBQ and not for grilling? There is a difference between grilling and barbecuing.
When you grill, you’re cooking quickly at high temperatures. Think grilling when cooking burgers and steaks.
When you BBQ, it’s generally slow ‘n low. This is when you cook a beef brisket or even a pork shoulder.
So, rubs (wet or dry) are best when you BBQ and not when you grill.
Why? Rubs burn when they are cooked at too high a temperature. When you BBQ, it’s cooking slowly, so the rubs don’t burn.
