    I left my dry bbq rub in its plastic container out in the sun. For a week before I noticed it. You think it's bad now.

    Bacteria needs Moisture to grow. A Dry Rub can stay for years outdoors and still be safe to eat. On the other hand, high temps, 90°+ can accelerate the loss of flavor in a Rub. One Week? No big deal....All summer and that rub will have lost all it's flavor...JJ
