What Makes a Great Dry Rub?

At Casa M Spice Co™, we give you a great barbecue dry rub. We’ve perfected our blends over two decades of development to include 4th of July barbecue, birthday potlucks, holiday dinners, and some big family gatherings.

Our barbecue dry rubs are a blend of all-natural ingredients that bring out a medley of flavors, including smoke, brightness, heat, sweetness (in some) and earthy flavors. While our spice blends are certainly unique, there are specific ingredients that make up the foundation of a great barbecue dry rub. Let’s look at those ingredients and how we at Casa M Spice Co™ incorporate them into our blends.

Salt - Salt is typically the basis for a dry rub and can be a mix of different kinds of salts from regular refined salt to kosher salt to sea salt, even seasoned salts like garlic or onion salt. The Casa M Spice Co™ spice blends are officially low sodium so you can apply more of the other flavors without over salting; it also means that you’re not overpaying for a shaker full of lightly flavored salt.

Sugar - Adding sugar does several things to the meat when the rub is applied. In addition to adding a sweet flavor to barbecue and barbecue sauce, sugar also serves as a barrier, locking in flavors and creating the caramelized outer bark on your meats. The sugar directly adds the color and flavor to barbecue.

Pepper - The sugar may provide the flavor, but it is the pepper that adds the spice. Pepper is responsible for the heat that goes into a barbecue dry rub. Like salt, many different types of peppers can be included in a dry rub to include black peppers, white peppers, green peppers, and red peppers. Almost all are common in dry rubs for barbecue.

Signature Flavors - With all of the other ingredients starting to bring the blend together, put your stamp on it with different signature flavors. These flavors come from a variety of sources including garlic, ginger, cumin, paprika, onion, oregano, rosemary, and thyme. Most of these help contribute to the earthy flavors of a rub. The Casa M Spice Co™ spice blends include many herbs and spices to achieve our signature flavors and take our blends to another level.

Chilis - A staple of our barbecue dry rubs is ground chile peppers. The chiles provide a lingering and building heat to your meats and complement other flavors in the rub as well. When you combine the chilis with the different signature flavors in our dry rubs, you will certainly be able to taste the reasons why we are so wild about our spice blends and dry rubs.

Combining these ingredients can help you create a dry rub perfect for BBQ. That said, you may not be a cooking expert and may not want to attempt to make a dry rub from scratch, which is where we at Casa M Spice Co ™ come in. We have mastered and perfected our blends and dry rubs to make it easy for you to add signature flavor profiles to all of your meals.

These ingredients are the basis for our rubs and our Original Formula blend Chain Reaction™, which can bring out the natural flavors of any meat from beef and brisket to pork and chicken and beyond.

Do you like a little more heat or a milder taste? Chain Reaction™ has variations to provide a taste and flavor to suit any level of chile-heat-tolerance. Our Uncontrolled Chain Reaction™ formula offers more heat than our original formula, while our Controlled Chain Reaction™ formula is a bit milder than our original formula.

At Casa M Spice Co™, we are all about flavor, and that’s why we are bringing our spice blends and rubs directly to your kitchen. We have put a great deal of effort into perfecting our spice blends and rubs, and now we want to share them with you.
