Juancho's Mustard Rub 2
Since I really like the combination of grilled pork and mustard, the development of the recipe for Juancho's Mustard Dry Rub No. 1 was just a matter of time. And that original mustard dry rub recipe proved to be fantastic for barbecue chicken and lamb as well.
Meanwhile back at the ranch, we take no rest and light the fire just about every weekend (sometimes even twice) so developments continue. The spices mix for barbecue pork presented on this page is the result of trying something else for five or six times in a row until the Hot Smoke BBQ test panel agreed that this is it! (Of course this trying and testing was only bearable because of a good supply of cold beer and a few dangerously good Margaritas... )
Juancho's Mustard Dry Rub #2
Juancho's Mustard Dry Rub Recipe No. 2 contains the following ingredients:
|Sea Salt, no iodine, ground medium coarse|
|Black Peppercorns (ground medium-coarse)|
|Brown Sugar (packed tight)|
|Mustard Seed, yellow or brown, ground coarse to medium coarse|
The ingredients of Juancho's Mustard Dry Rub #2:
freshly ground mustard seed, brown sugar, ground seasalt, garlic powder, freshly ground black pepper corns;
Grind the individual ingredients using a mortar and pestle, but don't overdo it. The mustard should stay coarse; as soon as all seeds are broken it should be good enough.
Put all ingredients in a non-reactive bowl and mix everything thoroughly. Break any lumps of brown sugar using the back of a spoon, or use your fingers.
Use about 2 to 3 tablespoons of rub for every 2 pounds (about 1 kilo) of ribs. (for thicker meat use an extra tablespoon of rub for every 2 pounds)
The above will yield about one cup of dry rub. Put the remaining rub, if any, in an airtight jar or zip-lock bag. Stored in a cool and dark place it will keep for at least a couple of months.
