    The Amazing Christy!'s Note:

    Alton Brown's equation for a good basic rub. He uses a quart Mason jar with two seals to mix and store the rub. One lid is the cover and the other has holes punched to make a shaker. Note the recipe is actually measured in parts, but in order for the zaar software to read it I inserted cup measurements. You can make as much or little as you want by using parts, i.e. part = 1/4 cup. That's what we do, otherwise I'd need another flour container. Now this recipe is not for the actually cooking of the meat. That is left to your creative juices.

    Mason J ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Seal first 3 ingredients in a jar and shake to combine.
    2. 2
      Now we come to the final 1 cup/part add on or spices. Use about anything you like. Alton uses black pepper, cayenne, jalapeno seasoning, Old Bay, dried thyme, onion powder mixed to equal one part as an example.Add the 1 part add on to the jar and shake well.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle liberally on meat of choice,patting the rub onto the meat. Wrap in foil and let set for at lease 2 hours if not overnite. Depending on what meat, cut and grade, you can grill, braise, broil, glaze, barbeque or smoke to your heart's content.
