Computer specialists a.k.a. nerds, refer to breaking the code to the operating system for a computer system as a ‘jail break.’ Cooks refer to cracking the code to recipes and spices as a breakout or a copycat.
I like to refer to this rub as a Jail Break…of course “if I tell you what steak rub this copycat recipe is formulated from I’d have to kill you” I think the common lingo goes.
Hint: A very famous high-end American consumer retail company that sells kitchenwares, furniture and linens, as well as other housewares and home furnishings, along with a variety of specialty foods, soaps and lotions no longer sells this rub!
