My favorite Meat Rub Sauce Recipes

All you have to do is rub your meat.

To properly apply the rub, HEAVILY coat a piece of meat on all sides, really pile it on, then lightly shake the meat so the excess falls off.

After rubbed let the meat sit, overnight is good, a couple days is better. Grilling, roast, smoking, or braising will work the best as a cooking method.
