Rubs - Information and Spice Variations

The following spice blends are multi-purpose seasonings with a coarser grain size. Although any almost blend can be used as a rub, the coarser blends are particularly suited for it. They hold up well for slow-roasting, when long cooking times tend to kill the flavor of finely ground spices, and add wonderfully complex flavor when rubbed into meat and rested overnight before cooking. Mix them into a marinade, or rub them right on dry or with a little oil, and you're ready to go!
