How to Make Your Own BBQ Rub That is Super Tasty
You need to realise that no matter how hard you try excelling at your barbecuing skills, if you miss on focusing on making a perfect BBQ rub for your barbecuing, then you are simply screwed! If you know how to prepare a BBQ rub that will be loved by all the members of your family or all your friends, then only can we say that you have done extremely well barbecuing. BBQ Rub is that final cherry on the cake which will add magic to your steaks.
Add the Taste
Having a BBQ rub is not a great task but is definitely an important one that will enhance the taste of grilled meats to a whole new level. Just remember, there is as such rule that is set in concrete which you will have to follow to end up having a magically delicious BBQ rub. Making a BBQ rub requires some cooking skills, a fair idea of tastes and a lot of creativity in you.
Here, we will be learning my way of making a mystical BBQ rub. Getting things done my way has always been my attitude and this attitude is the sole reason that I prefer to formulate my own BBQ Rub as per my whims and fancies. In addition to that, it is always easier to change the formula of your BBQ Rub as per the taste of the people who will be joining you for your steak meal. We recommend using either one of these coal grills or a gas BBQ to cook your food on. If there is a group of people who like to keep their food bland will be joining me for a meal, then I will prepare a light mixture of seasoning with very little or no spices or sweet flavour. But on the other hand, if I have a company that likes to keep their meal spicy and refined with multiple seasoning, then I can go ahead and change the BBQ Rub formula by adding a number of sour, spicy or sweet seasonings as per the taste. This flexibility in cooking is what we must adjust to in order to excel the art of barbecuing.
To make my BBQ rub formula, you will need all the below-mentioned items –
- ¼ cup light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon white pepper
- 1 teaspoon cumin
Once you have assembled all these required items, the next step demands that you mix all these products real well. To mix the items, either you can use a food processor, or you can simply use a hand mixer. Using these tools, you can finely combine and amalgamate all the ingredients mentioned here (or in case you want to delete or add some of it, then you can do that too!).
Keep Your Sugar Game Strong
There are a few things that you need to keep in mind before you go ahead and develop your own exotic BBQ rub. First of all, you need to keep your sugar game strong. You will have to decide that which sugar will serve the need of being a good base. It can either be refined sugar or brown sugar or even turbinado sugar, whichever suits your tongue. Secondly, you might want to ensure that the steaks that you consume should taste great as well as you should not be compromising with the high quality of food.
Therefore, to make certain that it is so, you will have to use fresh spices, herbs and other seasonings and anything that has been there for more than six months needs to be discarded right there and then. And thirdly, before going forward with your magic formula and sprinkling it over all your steaks, you should taste a pinch of it to get a fair idea of how it tastes and what all is missing. Then, you can always add the missing seasonings and make your magic formula perfect.
There you go – you may now bless your taste buds with a magical taste that will surely leave you baffled and longing for more of it.
