    Salt without being InSALTing

    Need to add salt to some of the rubs I'm making especially the Cajun one to use on my burgers.
    Any advice on the ratio of salt to spice would be much appreciated. I am planning on using plain old table salt unless otherwise advised.

    I think it's more personal preference than anything else. I have to be careful with my salt intake so I'll find a rub recipe, Cajun being a good example, and reduce the salt called for. Give it a taste and maybe add more. Start with lower amounts. You can add salt but you can't take it away

      +1 on this.
      My dry rub recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of salt.
      I may put in 1 level teaspoon of sea salt.

    Here's few ideas that were posted a while back. This might help you decide. I like to have a "Salty Rub" to use occasionally.

    If you use the rule of thumb of 1/2 tsp kosher salt per pound (500 g) of meat, and you know about how much rub you normally add to that same amount of meat, you could mix about 1/4 tsp table salt with the same amount of rub. See how that tastes and adjust the salt from there.

      That makes logical sense. I'm looking more for a salt rub for my smash burgers and was wondering about the ratio commercial rubs use. Thank you for the input.

      +1. A great rule of thumb to start with is half salt, half spices.

    Because of my wife's heart murmur we try to really minimize using salt in anything. I have found www.spicesinc.com has a lot of different flavor enhancers without any salt and many with low salt that you can search through. They also have good write up on each blend with suggestions and I thought their prices are reasonable.

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.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
