Homemade Meat RUB recipes

BBQ rubs are a perfect alternative for those who don't care for their meat smothered in sauce. BBQ rubs can impart a lot of flavor to meat, but since they are dry, it's less messy. BBQ rubs can be sweet, salty, hot, or mild, and are easy to make, so you can come up with your own special blend.

A rub is a combination of spices, seasonings and herbs that add flavor and texture to meats. These spice rub recipes will give you a rub for anything you want to barbecue or grill.

These recipes can be stored in a cool dark place in a ziploc baggie or airtight container with a label on them. Store for (most say 6 months) but I have had some for up to a year & they taste fine.
