At Jake's Famous Foods we'll start with a base amount of knowledge in understanding what a rub actually is and what it does. Now the simplest of all rubs is salt which has been around for thousands of years. I'm sure every person thinks they know what salt really is and what it does. And from our basic days in high school chemistry we learn about the existence of salt, or that white stuff we've been shaking on our burgers and french fries for years. But would it surprise you to know that salt is a mineral composed primarily of sodium chloride (NaCl). A mineral being inorganic or classified as something that is not alive or living, like vegetables or roots in the earth. Salt is a chemical compound of sodium and chloride and in its natural form as a crystalline mineral is known as rock salt or halite.
It is important to note this small but not innocuous difference between a bbq rub and a bbq seasoning. BBQ Rubs are meant to be shaken and layered onto meats that will be allowed to bathe in the rubs for a period of time. While bbq seasonings are just the opposite, being place on the intended meat sometimes minutes before they hit the grill to play a role in the Maillard effect of browning the meats. Seasonings can and will be burned off the meat quickly if not properly allowed to rest and be absorbed through the Myofibril structures of the meat which supports holding the seasoning while effectively curing the meat with flavor.
