What is adobo? Is it just a sort of Mexican seasoned salt? I was playing around on the grill today. I mixed adobo, smoked paprika, garlic poweder,onion powder, Chinese five-spice powder, black pepper, cumin and some brown sugar into a rub. I seasoned three racks of ribs, let 'em sit for an hour, and then onto the grill. I grilled them, and then retired them to the oven in covered Pyrex. I added some apple juice with a dash of liquid smoke and balsamic vinegar. I don't know what to expect from the adobo. It didn't strike me as too different from Lowerys. I will let you know how they turn out.
