Basic Barbecue Rub

the rub

It's grilling season and we're ready with a slew of (or maybe just three) recipes. We like to kick things off with a basic dry rub. There's nothing crazy in here, just seven simple ingredients. You'll notice sugar is omitted from the list for a few reasons: it burns (although if your slow cooking your meat right, it shouldn't burn even if it's candy coated), it's not nutritious (I guess), and most importantly, it muddies the flavor of the meat (well, that's my opinion).

Dry Rub

2 tbs dry mustard
1 tbs smoked paprika
1 tsp celery salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp salt
½ tsp cumin

Before you light your barbecue, combine all ingredients in a bowl. It couldn't be easier. Then just lovingly massage it into every crevice of whatever meat you're about to grill (or do it a day in advance). Yep. It gets real creepy.
