A barbecue rub is a mix of various seasonings that are literally rubbed on to the outside of meat or poultry before grilling. Rubs can be either wet or dry and come in savory or sweet flavor varieties. This dry rub recipe was provided to us by our friends over at Memphis Blues Barbecue House.
Suggested Beer Pairings: Amber Ale, Indian Pale Ale, Pale Ale. Listed below are some of our favorites in these categories:
BBQ rub and amber ale is a perfect match for any type of meat. The sweetness in the rub and the sweetness in the beer and roasted flavours will make the both the flavours in the food and in the beer distinct. Indian Pale Ale will match the aggressive spices on the tongue and at the same time allow a person to taste the stronger beers in stages, highlighting the floral notes and bitter finish in the beer. Pale Ale will not overwhelm the palate if the spices are more mild or if a less aggressive flavoured meat (like chicken or alligator) is used.
