Obie Cue
« on: July 29, 2022, 04:32:31 PM »
Finally got around to ordering some Obie Cue rubs and I can't wait to give 'em a try. They're one of the few that offer low or very low sodium spice blends and they are highly regarded in the BBQ world. Smoke on!!!!!!

Howdy Virg,

I usually make my own rubs. Over time I have dramatically reduced the amount of salt with little or no loss of flavor. I do find if I can have the rub on the meat for a long time a little more salt helps the flavors penetrate the meat, especially if it's a large cut like a brisket.

FYI

 Howdy, Reverend!

I used to make a lot of my own rubs but I guess I've gotten lazy in my old age! I've found that I don't miss the salt at all if I have enough spicy heat, and using a low sodium rub allows me to control exactly how much salt I apply. I looked back at some of my old bbq recipes and they were off the chart with salt. Of course, you can also control your sodium intake with portion control but who on God's green earth can only eat two ribs?!!! :D

Howdy Virg,

You're absolutely right. Far better to apply portion control to the salt so you have no reason to apply it to BBQ portions. My diet starts tomorrow.

I went low salt long before my heart problems, my cardio people laugh when they tell me my sodium is a little bit low because I say anchovy pizza time. ;D

Very common question people ask me is why do processed foods use so much salt, it isn't needed as a preservative any more in most cases. 

Well the answer is simple it adds flavor and is far cheaper than herbs and spices so they use more salt and less herbs and spices. 


Save the salt intake for things that really need salt.

I think the American palate has become so accustomed to excessive salt that anything lower in sodium tastes bland.

One of my favorite pastimes was fermenting vegetables, making sauerkraut. I'm a firm believer in the benefits of fermented food but salt is a major component of fermenting so I've pretty much stopped doing it. I guess some folks have fermented with reduced sodium but I don't think I have the nerve to risk flirting with botulism!
