I would just hit them with some Adobo, Cracked Pepper and slap them on the grate.

Well, they're already gonna have some salt from the soy. I use Fiesta brand's fajita seasoning. I love it.



On edit - they make a salt free version of this as well.

I've never done skirts myself, (but have eaten a ton cooked by others).
Seems to me the best "flavor" for a skirt would be (and has been for my taste buds) is a simple S/P.
Too much funky stuff on there might kill the majic a skirt steak is capable of. I couldn't imagine putting any kind of a typical rub on one. Fresh off the grill, sliced up and on my tortilla is how I like 'em.

Just my opinion though.

Yeah, I don't think I'd use a traditional "rub" on them since screamin hot grillin is what's gonna give you the best results and a "rub" will likely have some sugar in it.


Just use Adobo, or even just Lemon Pepper, Lime Pepper or just plain ole S&P, maybe some garlic powder, onion powder, etc.


Sounds good. A good grilled skirt steak, sliced across the grain is some good stuff.

I found a carne asada rub I put on mine. My marinade is more lemon/lime juice, steak sauce, garlic and chillis.

The Fiesta fajita seasoning is one of the few commercial blends I use. It is good.

However, some salt, pepper, cayenne, just a little cumin (a little goes a long way), and dried oregano would work. I never put it on heavy like a rub. I use it as a seasoning -- just a dusting.

My Mexican marinade has fresh chopped cilantro in it. I am not a big cilantro fan, but I like it in marinades -- it gives a more subtle cilantro flavor that I can appreciate.

My Mexican marinade base is olive oil -- regular or light, not Extra Virgin. I've never used Soy Sauce, but a little would work as a replacement for salt. I can't imagine using it at the main liquid for a Mexican marinade.

Good luck with your cook.

McCormick's Grill Mates Cowboy rub. It's got coffee and cocoa in it. It's what I always use and it's awesome. I made some just last night on the Weber.

I usually use a Santa Maria rub, sometimes I add chipotle powder.
