Dry Rub Tips

How long can I leave my rub on? - When using your rub, the usual time to leave on your item of choice is at minimum, 15 minutes to 2 hours, but it can be left on up to 24 hours if you need to prepare in advance. However, if left on 24 hours, you will not get any noticeable change in taste. Some have said they've left theirs on up to 2 full days!

Applying Dry Rubs

Sprinkle dry rub on the meat. Apply an even coating; use a stainless steel spice shaker to coat the meat without getting too much dry rub in one spot. Make sure to apply a coating of dry rub over the entire piece of meat, even the back of a rack of ribs. If applying a rub to chicken with skin on, place it under the skin.

Press the dry rub into the meat. Pressing the dry rub onto the meat ensures that most of the dry rub clings to the meat. Wrap the meat in plastic wrap; marinate.
