Hello everyone,

New member here from the Florida panhandle. I'm an advid BBQ'er and I also do a alot of beef jerky. As a kid, I grew up next door to a pretty big name on the Food Network (name withheld) but I've met several celebrity chef types in my earlier years through him, so although I never wanted to do that for a living, I always thought what they did was pretty cool. But I prefer BBQ'ing over traditional cooking, so that's kinda what I like to do. But like all things in my life, I am no expert. So I'm looking forward to seeing what I can learn around here.

I also have an interest in creating my own seasonings, I've only developed one, but I'm always looking to learn more. Rubs and brines are something I've never tried but I'm interested in learning.

Cheers.

Welcome to the club! BBQ is my favorite. Wish I had more time to experiment.

Do you have any favorite rubs you are willing to share?

Good Cajan Rub I use on chicken: (4 brests)

2 Tsp Garlic Powder
1 Tsp Onion Powder
4 Tsp Smoked Paprika
.5 Tsp Cumin
2 Tsp Black Pepper
2 Tsp Sea Salt
1 Tsp Italian Seasoning
.5 Tsp Chili Powder
1 Tsp of Cayenne Pepper

Mix together and let them commingle for a few hours in a bowl or dish prior to use.

This is the only rub I've used, but its money every time! I usually blacken it in a cast iron pan for 3 minutes on each side, then bake it off for 40 minutes in the oven.

(Can we discuss baking on a BBQ forum, rofl.)
