The four flavors - A quest begins

Human beings can only distinguish four flavors in food, sweet, sour, salty and bitter. Everything we eat is a mixture of these four flavors. If you can balance these four flavors, you will have a winning recipe. Ketchup has been touted by some as the perfect example of the four flavors mixing perfectly; sweet from sugar, sour from vinegar, salty from salt and bitter from the tomatoes I guess.

In the next couple of weeks, I'll be working on creating my own BBQ rub. I'll use whatever I can find to create the perfect rub for chicken. I have an idea for a chicken that when smoked and finished is bright gold. After the rub I'll work on the mop and finally a finishing sauce. I’ll experiment with a marinade or using brine.

That's my goal for the next few weeks. I want to be able to submit a sparkling gold chicken, which tastes like BBQ for the contests in the spring.

Join the pursuit. Come back often and see how it goes.

I used to think that there were four tastes, too, but then I found out that they sliped in another one on us: umami.

Throw a little MSG into your rub and you'll have it all covered.
