If your rubs aren't from Spice Source, you're probably paying for a rub that's full of salt.
Pitmaster's Powder was designed for pork, but it's great on just about anything from beef to chicken to salmon to nuts.
This particular rub from Spice Source includes sugar to help form crust (bark) for meats like ribs. If you're carb conscious, use this rub but avoid sugar-heavy bbq sauces.
A rub carefully developed from flavour and food chemistry principles to create the proper crust for your next barbecue. Brown and white sugars blend with ground peppers to enhance flavour and form the perfect crust for ribs and smoked roasted pork when cooked at low temperature. For a Memphis-style barbecue, season the meat prior to smoking before applying another lighter coating just before serving. Pitmaster’s Powder was developed for pork but is great with beef, seafood, salmon and vegetables.
Spice Source is Australian-based and new to the barbecue dry rubs scene but have a great range of well blended, salt-free (and occasionally sugar-free) rubs usually containing only herbs/spices (2-3 rubs include sugar for bark/texture).
Most other commercial rubs are filled with salt, but Spice Source have kept salt away from theirs so that you're not wasting money on salt which is already cheap, to avoid doubling up on salt (e.g. salt from dry-brining vs salt from other rubs) and/or to control your salt intake.
