Title: Dry Rub Spice Marinade
Yield: 1 Servings
Categories: Marinades


1/4 c Kosher salt
2 tb Garlic powder
1 tb Dried thyme
2 ts Ground black pepper
1/4 c Granulated or brown sugar
2 tb Paprika
2 ts Cayenne pepper

Combine all ingredients, blending thoroughly. If reserving for later use,
store in a tightly capped jar. To use, sprinkle heavily over all sides of
meat and rub in well with fingers. Let meat stand at room temperature for
two hours, or lightly covered overnight in the refrigerator. Sprinkle meat
again lightly before grilling, broiling or baking. This recipe makes enough
for 3-4 pounds spareribs. Mixture is also good on poultry.

Keeps indefinitely in tightly capped jar. Note from the cook:"The secret of
a good dry rub is equal proportions of kosher salt and sugar. The salt
draws juices to the surface of the meat; the sugar drinks those juices up,
making a lovely, light, potently seasoned glaze on the meat.These are the
herb bottles closest to my hands, if you have other stuff handy, add it as
you wish: ground ginger, or dry mustard; red pepper flakes, or onion
powder. Customize it any way you will." Via: RFIX_S 09-28-1994
