I love to barbecue and used to enjoy mixing new and exciting barbecue sauces. Then, someone recommended Montreal Steak…which if you haven’t tried it, is simply a seasoning one rubs onto a steak or other meat…and voila…great tasting steaks…but that’s not all.
I actually prefer Montreal Steak as a rub on grilled chicken.
My favorite rub, however, is Renaissance Rub from Nantucket Off-Shore. This is an all natural, no salt seasoning…try it on shrimp, chicken, pork, steak…experiment and share the experience! Check out their offerings at www.nantucketoffshore.com.
Other great rubs are offered by www.scottsfoodproducts.com. Santa Maria Style Seasoning is great on chicken. Another rub from these guys is Steakhouse Rotisserie and Grill. I like to season a steak or pork chop with Santa Maria on one side; Steakhouse Rotisserie on the other. When using Santa Maria, go sparingly…it’s pretty heavy on the salt.
In the winter, if it’s just too nasty to grill outside, I like to use a heavy skillet-type pan with raised ridges. These are available at any store offering cooking utensils. You are basically grilling on top of your stove. These rubs work great in this manner on steak and pork chops. Chicken, on the other hand, may be baked in your oven with these rubs and come out great.
Let me know if you have a rub that you prefer. Happy Cooking!
