At my house we are addicted to Lysander’s mesquite rub. We buy it at the fancy supermarket for about $5 for 3.8 Oz bag. I put it on split chicken breast and grill it on the gas grill. Weekday dinners are done within 30 min.
I would like to re-engineer this rub or make some sort of rub with mesquite flavor. As far as I know there is no spice called mesquite. So could I make a rub and then throw it in the smokette with mesquite wood? Then just store the rub in a jar and use the rub when I need it.
Lysander’s mesquite rub – ingredients reads – salt, sugar, onion, paprika, black pepper, natural mesquite powder and oil maltodextrin and other spices.
