We are a grilling family... all seasons... all weather!

And we love a good BBQ! I have made all kinds of yummy barbecue sauces but recently I have found the wonderful world of barbecue rubs!!!!

What a depth of deliciousness and flavor they bring to almost any meat!

Here's my very favorite...


I usually double or triple this recipe. 

1 TBS smoked paprika
2 TBS garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper    
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne
1 TBS dried chives
2 TBS brown sugar
1 tsp  koshersalt
1 TBS sugar

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

Pat meat dry and rub all over liberally.

Next week I'll show you how I use it to make the tastiest ribs!!!
