Rub Storage Question

I have a difficult time resisting the opportunity to try a new rub product. As a result, I have a lot of different types of rub. Good problem to have, but I'm concerned about spoilage. Do any of you believe there is a benefit to storing rub in the refrigerator to try to extend the shelf life? Just wondering if anyone does that.

    Got to agree. I put plastic wrap between the container and lid, than freeze them. Larger are cheaper also.

    freeze them, herbs too, even a half an onion goes in the freezer. the herbs darken to black but the flavor is still better than dried :)
  • Do the rubs contain sugar? If so, don't go with the fridge--the freezer is a better choice. But room temp is fine, as long as you have 1)airtight containers 2)a cool, dry, dark place (like a pantry).
