How long do dry rubs last?
Be sure and start with fresh spices for the best quality rub, most lose their flavor after they have been open more than six months. It is best to store the rub in a dry, dark cabinet in a tightly sealed jar; it should last for up to 6 months.
How long do you leave a rub on meat?
To get the best results, a grill seasoning needs time to infuse its flavors in your meat. Therefore, it’s best to allow dry rubs to rest on the food in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Then allow the meat to come to room temperature just before you grill.
