The secret to amazing, flavorful meat is a solid rub as the base. The Chile Guy in Albuquerque, New Mexico has a large variety of chiles, flakes, seeds and powders that can help you create an award-winning rub perfect for every dish.
A dry rub requires a ratio of spices and herbs known as the 8:3:1:1 rub. This rub may not help you master your bbq grill, but it will help you master a flavor profile that is bar none to anyone else’s.
First you will want to select the fresh herbs and spices you plan to use, for a basic rub we recommend using salt, ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, crushed thyme, onion powder and of course, chili powder from The Chile Guy. Regardless of the spices you choose to put in your rub creation, the ratio of 8:3:1:1 will make any meat delicious.
