Jeff Rub Question

Discussion in 'Sauces, Rubs & Marinades' started by njsmoker83, Jun 22, 2010.

  1. I made some of Jeffs Rub about two months ago.  Had it in a tupperware in my fridge and just found it.  Do you guys think its still good to use?

    Well fresh is always best. I do not even keep mine in the fridge. Stays in a kitchen cabinet. As long as it is not caked too hard, I would think it would be fine to use.
  3. I'll probably just make a fresh batch, its worth it.

    Before you throw it out taste it, if it tastes good then keep it and use it. If you keep it in the fridge in an air tight container it should last 6 months IMO. My rubs are all on the top shelf of our spice cabinet and they keep a good strong flavor for 4-6 months.

    I make my rubs in really big containers and leave them in the counter and like Flash said if it not a big clod of goo you should be fine. After all your only enemy I think is water or moisture other then that it's just dry spices.

    I keep all my spices in spagetti jars in the caninet and they all seem fine.

    We have tried the vacuum bag/container and in the ref. and not. We are in a very low moisture area in AZ 10-20% during most of the year.

    Just in an airtight container works great and not in the sun as it will effect some spices.

    I think you'll be OK with what you have. I usually make just enough for my smoke, so I always have fresh rub on hand. It's all good my friend.
  9. thanks guys, i tasted it the other day and it was pretty good.  i should have left it by my spice rack instead of fridge.
