Starters Puddings Other
A dry Rub is sprinked over the meat prior to cooking to add flavour and crispness.
When the rub has sugar in it, it may well blacken if over direct flames.
Rubs will keep for 2 or 3 weeks in an airtight jar in the fridge or for months in the freezer.
All ingredients should be finely ground and well mixed.
