Tip #4 –
Measure out your needed seasoning
Using your rub while cooking near steam and heat will cause clumping, dry out flavors and could lead to molding.
Tip #5 –
While it’s always best to try and buy your rubs based on a reasonable use window, sometimes you can find great deals on larger quantities. If you do need to store a bulk buy, use several smaller containers and defrost only what you need. Defrosting and freezing repeatedly could cause excess moisture to clump and ruin your rub.
