Rub (got me) Down
Iím always testing new sauces and ribs. It is just the engineer in me. At least one slab is always the control variable Ė my rub and my sauce. Iíll tinker with the other slabs using a commercial brand or a modification of my recipe. Usually my stuff wins the day. But twice now, my rub has been edged out by a commercial brand. Tasting it on the tip of my finger doesnít leave me impressed either. It makes some mighty fine ribs though. I have to admit, it stings a little bit.
It seems like a lot of the brethren donít want to be bothered with making their own sauce or rubs. I canít believe Iím alone in feeling like this. Am I?
By the way, Iím already tinkering to take this sumbitch down on the next go-around.
