1 oz Sweet BBQ Rub
Ingredients: Sugar, Salt, , Garlic, Onion, Spices, Paprika
Not all BBQ rubs are made the same. Designed for a long indirect cook, my Sweet BBQ rub delivers the crowd pleaser for any long cook. No need to be light-handed, a heavy-handed use of this one will allow it to shine even with the strong, flavorful competition of your protein of choice. Pile it on and rub it in. This is the canvas your smoke will build on. Start with spice and flavor of Nerdy Dad BBQ rub and bring home first place.
1 Brined Turkey Breast with Nerdy Dad Dry Brine, 1oz Nerdy Dad Sweet BBQ Rub, 1 Tbs oil. Your Smoker set to higher heat (275-300). For lean smoked poultry shoot for a smokey bake rather than a long smoke. It keeps it juicier. Smoke approximately 2 hours until internal temp is 165F.
Tangy BBQ sauce for smoked item. No smoke flavor here to let your smoke shine through.
1/2 cup ketchup, 1 ounce Nerdy dad Sweet BBQ rub, 1 Tbs lime juice, 1 TBS apple juice
Better for baking BBQ sauce
1/2 cup smokey bbq sauce, 1/2 ounce Nerdy dad Sweet BBQ Rub, 1 tbs vinegar, 1 tsp coarse mustard, 2-4 tbs water. Finish your Baked 'BBQ' Item in the sauce. The longer you bake it the more water should be added. It will have sweet and smokey flavor with an advanced spice background note.
Do: Smoked products, Low and slow cooking, Garnish with fresh herbs
Don't: Mix in too many herbs, simple straight forward flavors
Heat (0-10): 1
