About dry rubs and marinades


Dry Rubs and Marinades

Dry Rubs are combinations of seasonings and spices rubbed onto meat before
grilling. Basic rubs often include coarsely ground pepper, paprika and garlic powder
Some include mustard, brown sugar, dries jalapeno or cayenne pepper. Crushed
herbs, such as sage, basil, thyme and oregano are also good choices.
Marinades add flavor, but they also help tenderize less tender cuts of
meat. Basic marinades include an acidic ingredient, such as wine, vinegar, soy
sauce or lemon juice, combined with herb, seasonings and oil. Always marinate
in the refrigerator, turning meat occasionally. Reserve some of the marinade
before adding the meat to use as a baste while the meat is cooking.
