In Reply to: Making a rub posted by New2Q on June 08, 2014 at 22:20:19:
No advice on *re-engineering* (or 'reverse engineering) an existing commercial rub, however, a word of advice...
If you are trying to come up with your own rub from scratch, start with VERY SMALL quantities...a teaspoon of this, a table spoon of that, a pinch of something else...if you like what you have, then make a second batch, but double up on your overall quantities (of course refining your recipe) until you get the recipe to where you want it.
I once experimented with rubs and found it WAY TOO EASY to have more inferior/experimental rub than I knew what to do with.
Take copius records/notes with regard to quantites so that you can build on (or refine) previous attempts with each new 'experiment'.
