Would like to hear from others about this sweet thing in a rub. I get plenty of sweet just from a decently fresh gran garlic.
Don't get me wrong, I love sugar, I love candy, just don't use it when making meat.
You WONT FIND ANY sugar in The Rub Co. Original & Santa Maria Style rub. Some like it, some don't. For those who don't. There you go.
Our other rubs do contain sugar.
