I still want to see the meat showing through but also the rub should be noticeable to the eyes. This is what works for me, but may be too much/too little for others. It also depends on the rub and what is in it. Heavy salt will get pelicle, heavy sugar need to watch it burning and turning black etc... Measure Measure Measure
LOL, I'm exactly the opposite. I sprinkle a little bit of dis, a little bit of dat. No two cooks turn out the same. It's about the cooking process, not the exactness of the rub for me.
