Is There a Distinctly “Vancouver” Watch?
This recipe (from Bob Lyon, the granddaddy of barbecue in the Pacific Northwest ) follows a rule of thumb that’s worth remembering anytime you are creating a rub: “a third, a third, a third.” Translation: one-third sugar, one-third seasoned salts and one-third dry herbs and spices will give the meat a balanced flavour profile.
Combine ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Add extra heat to this basic rub with cayenne pepper, hot paprika or ground chipotles. Also try adding 2 or 3 signature ground spices/herbs to suit your taste, like thyme, oregano, cumin, sage or ginger. Add only 1 to 3 tsp of each so they don’t overpower the rub. Makes about 3 cups.
