  1. Hi everyone !

    I was just diagnosed with Kidney  Problems. What I am asking is does anyone have any recipes for rubs or just anything that is low sodium and low potassium. Or any suggestions at all.  Yhis is a whole new world to me, And I really don't want to give up smoking meats. So Any Help is greatly appreciated

    Yes you can take the sodium down to a minimal. I would suggest taking a basic rub recipe and taking out or lowering the items needed and then add flavors that you like. I know several have done low or no sodium rubs and they work great. You can also change the kind of salt your using too.

    Here is a rub that I use quite often, it's my variation of "Baron's No Salt Rub".

    This recipe calls for lemonaid punch powder, but I've used cherry, lime and grape with great results.

    _______________________________________________________________

    BARON’S NO SALT RUB
    (Dutch’s Version)

    1 cup ˜Sugar in the Raw”
    3 tablespoons New Mexico chili powder
    1 tablespoon Sugar-free lemonade powder
    1 tablespoon parsley flakes
    1 tablespoon garlic powder
    1 tablespoon onion powder
    2 teaspoons celery seed
    2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
    1 teaspoon basil
    1 teaspoon cumin
    1 teaspoon dill weed
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    1 teaspoon marjoram
    1 teaspoon sage

    Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
    Store any unused rub in an air tight container

    Sounds like a great recipe Dutch, you could take it one step further & use Splenda instead of the Raw sugar.

    That's true Al, but since I still have a goodly amount of Sugar in the Raw left, Ma says I have to use it up. One plus is my Doc would rather me use raw sugar instead of the white processed stuff.[​IMG]

    I have quit adding salt to rubs and sauces. About the only thing I use salt for is brines. You dont miss it after  a while.
