Freeze Your Rub – BBQ Spice Tips

spicet1.Still003How do you store your spices?    With a little care you can make your spices pop just a bit more according to Cheyenne Ledyard from Etsy’s The BBQ Pantry.

The tips and tricks – paraphrased below-  are basic but worth noting:

  1. Get Toasty.  Toast Your Spices and maximize the potency.  This releases oils and flavor.
  2. Stay cool.   Never store the spices above a stove.    Heat degrades flavor.
  3. Don’t store spices too long. Keep it fresh.
  4. Use your freezer.  Dark and sealed dry.
  5. Keep them in the dark.  Sunlight degrades flavor too.  See tip 2.

My favorite spice trick is using a Monday to Sunday travel pill box to store just enough spices for that trip to the beach… more here…

Got a favorite spice trick for BBQ or just cooking?  Love to hear it.  Share it in the comments.
