Myron Mixon Rub

If you travel frequently and tend to get achy and stiff immediately after spending hours on a flight or on the road, you need to pick up this muscle rub.You probably already know the spicy, minty smell of this analgesic formula — it’s a classic for a reason. It’s great to keep in your gym bag (and even your travel kit) to ease sore muscles and eliminate any stiffness. It works like magic every time!

The combination of MSM (or dimethyl sulfone, an inflammation-reducing supplement), vitamin B-6, and arnica aims to stop the acute inflammation at the root of your pain, rather than just masking it.

Dr. Gertzog also recommends spot-testing on a small area first to ensure you don’t have any adverse effects or allergic reactions to the ingredients in the rub you wish to use.Arnica has long been renowned (as in, for over 200 years) as a plant that helps with bruising, swelling, and pain. Boiron’s arnica line channels these benefits in their pain relief products, and this water-based, non-scented, paraben-free gel is one of its best sellers. Being homeopathic, it has no contraindications or drug interactions, and a very low risk of side effects.

This muscle rub from doTERRA feels seriously cold on contact. It features a blend of peppermint, wintergreen, and blue chamomile to cool and soothe aching muscles and joints. And, as the name implies, this cream will target the deep spots that other rubs have a hard time reaching.
According to Dr. Ben Gertzog, PT, DPT, regional director of physical therapy for SportsMed Physical Therapy, topical muscle rubs can be used on nagging aches and pains, such as tight shoulders or sore lower backs, but should never be used on acute injuries, open wounds, bruises, or surgical sites. It’s also important to remember, he says, that “muscle rubs don’t actually treat or affect the actual muscle tissues, heal injury, or provide any lasting relief.” Instead, the massaging action combined with the cooling or warming sensation “distract” the nervous system to provide temporary relief. For this reason, if you have ongoing pains, he recommends seeing a qualified physical therapist or another healthcare professional for an evaluation and treatment plan.

“Muscle rubs usually provide a tingling or numbing feeling, with either a cool or warm sensation or a combination of both,” Dr. Gertzog notes. These sensations are caused by ingredients like menthol or camphor (cooling) and capsaicin (warming). Since these ingredients help to temporarily reduce the feeling of pain, you may be tempted or feel capable of doing things you should probably be avoiding, he adds. To prevent further problems, wait until the muscle rub has worn off completely before proceeding with any activity that could further strain or injure the affected area(s).

To get started, prep your ribs by patting them dry, removing the membrane, and trimming if your butcher hasn’t already. Cooking times can vary, so think of the 3-2-1 method as less of a recipe, and more of mouthwatering journey. As you move through the final steps, begin checking your ribs for doneness. You’ll know your ribs are ready when the internal temp is 185° – 190°F and if you poke a toothpick into the meat, it slides through with little or no resistance. Just like butter.1 hour of cooking unwrapped and slathered in barbecue sauce (or leave them dry if you prefer, but we recommend you spritz them with 50/50 apple juice and apple cider vinegar if you do). Lay the unwrapped ribs on the grill with the bone side down. You want to start checking for doneness within the first 20 minutes or so. As they get 20-30 minutes to being done apply and reapply as much barbecue sauce as you want. Towards the very end you can even crank the grill temp up, if you want to make sure your sauce gets nice and tacky.

Ribs are a staple for any Pit Boss’ diet. There are so many ways to craft a bossin’ flavor profile on your ribs: smoking, dry rubbed, or barbecued.

It’s ideal for spare ribs, and it’s the perfect starter recipe for first-timers or anyone looking for that melt in your mouth rib style.
3 hours of smoking. We generously coated every inch of the ribs with mustard and Pit Boss Sweet Rib Rub. Lay them on the grill bone side down and smoke at 225°F.2 hours wrapped tightly in foil. Some Pit Bosses add a liquid during this process and some don’t. We recommend trying both ways and letting us know what you think @PitBossGrills. For sweet juicy flavor add a little butter, brown sugar, and honey. Then, as your sealing up the foil, you can pour in a ¼ cup of apple juice for a steamed, tender texture. Place the foil wrapped ribs back on the grill flesh side down for 2 hours.

The big advantage of dry rubs, and the reason we love using them so much, is that they don’t add any additional moisture to the exterior of a piece of meat the way that a marinade does. Whenever you apply heat to chicken thighs, pork chops, or any other piece of protein, the moisture on the surface needs to evaporate before a sear can start to develop, so dousing them in liquid beforehand doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. A dry rub—which is, naturally, dry—is going to put you on a faster track to the beautifully-caramelized crust you’re after.

What is a dry rub though? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like: A dry rub is a blend of seasonings and spices, without any wet ingredients, that you rub on meat. This might sound kind of like a dry brine, but we’re talking about something else entirely. Unlike a dry brine, which stays on a piece of meat for a long period of time before being rinsed off, a dry rub is usually applied to meat shortly before it is cooked.

That’s not to say a dry-rubbed piece of protein needs a secondary element. It doesn’t. If you balance all of the elements of a dry-rub correctly, that aggressively-seasoned crackly exterior will hold its own. And by hold its own, we mean make you forget about marinades all together. Which you probably should do.
We usually don’t like to use the word “dry” when talking about our food. But there are exceptions. A dry martini? Sure. Dry-aged steak? Absolutely. Dry rubs? Oh, yes. We love dry rubs. We prefer them to marinades almost every time. That’s right: When it comes to seasoning meat and developing a exceptionally-textured exterior, nothing beats a dry rub.

There are varying degrees of involvement when it comes to dry rubs. The simplest dry rub we find ourselves using is made from salt, pepper, and brown sugar, which delivers a solid dose of seasoning, flavor, and sugar to be caramelized. But that’s just the baseline. You can go in just about any direction with a dry rub, as long as you include a good dose of salt and sugar.As far as the other flavor enhancers we like to include, some heat is usually welcome—cayenne offers plenty of kick, but we also like the fruity muskiness of both sweet and hot paprika, or even mustard powder. A little bit of cumin, coriander, or black pepper lends some nice earthiness to the mix, and onion or garlic powder are almost always welcome. Crushed toasted fennel seeds, good dried oregano, tangy sumac—you can go in whichever direction you please, as long as you remember to keep a balance between all of the components. You don’t want a dry rub that’s 90 percent heat. No one’s going to enjoy that.

What is the 3 2 1 rule for smoking ribs?
Essentially, 3 2 1 ribs go like this: 3 hours of smoking the ribs directly on the pellet grill. 2 hours wrapped in foil, still cooking on the grill. 1 hour of cooking, unwrapped and slathered in barbecue sauce.
But while a dry rub is our preferred pre-cooking treatment for meat, there’s nothing wrong with incorporating a liquid element after you’ve gotten some browning going. We love brushing a glaze, be it a mixture of maple syrup and soy sauce or just some store-bought barbecue sauce, onto chicken thighs during the last few minutes that they’re on the grill or in the oven, creating layers of complex, concentrated flavor. And we’re all about finishing a grilled skirt steak with a pungent sauce once it’s cooked, rested, and sliced—nobody’s ever gotten mad about a drizzle of bright, herby salsa verde or chimichurri. So, yeah: It’s not that we have a problem with liquids, it’s just that we don’t want to apply them to proteins until after it’s gotten its sear on.Ingredients: Brown sugar, paprika, black pepper, cumin, garlic, sea salt, onion powder, hickory powder, cayenne pepper and other diabolically delicious secret spices, with less than 1% silica for anti-caking. Johnny Trigg was born in Alvarado, Texas, and is a world-renowned celebrity chef who spent anywhere between 225 days to a year on the road and competed in nearly 50 barbecue contests.

These are people who know their way around a smoker or pellet grill.

You may have seen them on Destination America’s show, BBQ Pitmasters where pitmasters walked the audience through making everything from fresh ham and the most succulent smoked food. I’m here to walk you through all the tips and tricks to become a successful BBQ pitmaster.“It’s ready when it’s ready”. A phrase that is no stranger to pitmasters. While the ‘low and slow’ method is quite common, Aaron Franklin suggests pitmasters turn up the heat. Cooking at temperatures between 200º F and 250º F is perfectly alright, and isn’t necessarily a temperature to check out when you’re done smoking your brisket.Myron has won over a baffling 200 grand championships and 30 state championships.

In Aaron Franklin’s words, “You can make barbecue out of anything, so buy the best product you can afford, just don’t skimp on materials”.

It only makes sense to start the list of pitmaster favorites with the one and only Aaron Franklin. Loved for making over 106 briskets in a day, Aaron is no stranger to the world of barbecue. His favorite tool to cut and chop meat is one with divots – These knives are also called scalloped knives.

Aaron Franklin suggests that using salt and pepper to get yourself started is perfectly alright.

Aaron’s advice from the beginning for beginners in the BBQ world has always been “You can make barbecue out of anything, so buy the best product you can afford, just don’t skimp on materials”.He has been seen in the Cool Smoke competition where he was then chosen as a member of the judge’s panel on Destination America’s BBQ Pitmasters, quite similar to Myron Mixon.This breaking knife is ideal for folks who want to work with whole carcasses, especially when working with pork shoulder and large spreads of smoked food like briskets. This boning knife from the Shogun series is made with a Japanese super steel core that is known for its rust and corrosion-resistant nature.
