    Rub Texture????

    I always do ribs dry and serve sauces on the side but the dry rub does have a bit of a grainy texture to it. Id like to eliminate that if I could

    I thought about milling my rub to make it finer. Anybody have any thoughts on this? Other solutions?

    you could run the rub through a coffee grinder to make it finer if you have something in it that is pretty coarse. I can't say i have had this issue though so i don't know. Maybe go lighter on the rub? or put some EVOO on first?

      I do oil first for sure. Its a pretty fine texture. I'm going to try and run some thru the spice ginger just to see. I may have to warp 10 it in the Ninja.

        How long do you let the rub sit on the ribs before putting them to the heat?

          Go at least four hours in the fridge and see what that does. I just run mine through a simple cheap sifter from wal-mart.

          MMD / silica sand, very fine

          EDIT:

          RUB is MMD

          TEXTURE is silica sand

            After I mix my MMD I tumble it and then but about a cup at a time in my mini blender and grind it to almost a powder state and then store it. I have a greek seasoning that o like to use as a rub and it is extra course out of the jar. I do the same for it and it is great.

              What is MMD and why would you want it in your rub?

              Well i looked through the ingredients and the only thing i would be curious about is the white sugar. but a coffee grinder should knock everything down.

                Thanks JR
                I agree, I'll run that threw a mill once. I think Jrods tip will pay big as well between the two things look bright. See what happens this weekend.

              I use my food processor to make rubs have a lighter texture

                I like that idea. I always process my brown sugar but never thought about processing the combined rub.

                Thanks Grant

              I dry & crush my brown sugar before making the rub. No grainy texture in my rub.

              Spread your brown sugar out on a paper plate, thin layer to the edges. I think one reg size p-plate will hold about 1/2C quite easily. Pu tit in 230* oven for 20-30 min. Pull out, as it cools it makes some crackling sounds. Once cool adn hardened, bend the plate to loosen the brown sugar 'cookie' and slip it into a gal-sized ziplock bag, roll with rolling pin or glass jar, I use a full spaghetti or similar jar. Roll until it's all dust. Keep your rub bag sealed so it doesn't re-constitiute itself from ambient humidity or it may clump again after several days. If so it's only slightly.

                Question, did you ever try granulated brown sugar?

                OR do you think granulated (white) sugar could be part of my problem?

              #13
              Never have. I use granluated white sugar too and haven't noticed this. I would've guessed the juices from the ribs would meld the rub into a slight glaze and eliminate the grainy texture....I'm not sure why you have this.

                I think Jrod has the answer with my short rub sit time. I'm going to 1: test my rub with a 4 hour sit. Then 2: test my rub with a run thru the mill on a short sit,

                I think that one or the other will have a similar outcome. I dont know but it will be fun to get to the bottom of this mystery.

                Which is why we're here right? The journey. opps sorry wrong journey.

                  Once again, there are just too many responses that are just plain wrong to that.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
