Salt question

Making Dr. BBQ Big Time BBQ Rub. Recipe calls for salt. Can I used kosher salt instead of regular iodized table salt? Also, the directions on the kosher box say that if you use more than 1/4 cup of kosher instead of table, add 1 Tbs for each 1/4 cup of salt. Thoughts and comments?

    I recently saw an explanation on a cooking show although I can't say if it's a fact.
    They said, "Because Kosher salt has a larger grain size than regular salt there is more air in a cup of it than the other. Since you are seasoning to taste it takes more Kosher to provide the same amount of flavor."
  • I used kosher in the Big Time Rub. It is a pretty good rub.

    go here when you have the time lots of good salt info
    and consider getting a kitchen scale. kd8000 is a good choice several of us have that model [including lc i believe]
    if you weigh the salt then the type you use does not matter. also, kd8000 does bakers percentage .. good if you want to get into dough making
