Whyldfire Bar-B-Que Dry Rubs.

Hello Bloggers its been a while since i`ve updated this page so here we go...
A “Dry Rub” is a spice mixture that is rubbed into meat before cooking. It’s popular in Southern and Cajun cuisines. It’s called "dry rub" as it is used in place of a liquid marinade for meat. For meat that is better without added liquid or moisture, a dry rub is best way to keep the texture at the right level.

With foods of the South, a dry rub is often used on grilled or barbqued meats. Dry rubbed ribs, pulled pork, brisket and chicken are also given flavor through a spice rub. Most typical Southern style spice rubs include chili and cayenne pepper, garlic and onion powder, salt and black pepper, paprika and dry mustard. Although the quantities of hot ingredients can be adjusted, this is an extremely spicy mix and adds a powerful kick to meat.

I like to use dry rub’s that have a sweetness level a bit higher than your typical southern rub. The use of brown sugar or raw sugars will caramelize over a period of time. When the right amount of smoke/heat is applied a bark or crust will form on the meat that is extremely flavorful.

Whyldfire Bar-B-Que has developed our own line of dry rubs that we use on all our meats. The most popular dry rub for pork and beef is our "All Purpose Original" dry rub. It has the sweetness level that gives our barbque the taste that folks really like. Sweet but with a little heat.

We also have a "Poultry & Fish" seasoning that we use on all our grilled poultry products. This seasoning is also used in side dishes such as baked potatoes & vegetables. Also great on sea food and smoked salmon. Some folks even season there pop corn with this rub! Ingredients used are kosher salt, onion, garlic, lemon pepper, dill weed, parsley & a pinch of oregano. Look for these rubs at select grocer`s & barbecue supply stores here in Norfolk Ne.
