From Smoke & Spice
Gray: This is my favorite rub so far. This recipe is from a smoke cooking book, and it has a good amount of sugar, so it is prone to burning if get it too hot on a grill. I typically cook my chicken slowly on the grill so it should work nicely for that. I can’t wait to try it on pork chops too. I’m curious to see how that goes. This really has a good balance of sweet and heat and the spices are just right to boost the flavor of any grilled or barbecued meat. Enjoy!
Katie: This was a great rub! The sugar in the rub caused the chicken skin to get a little blackened while grilling, but it still tasted delicious. We will be happily using this rub to make delicious chicken until it is too cold to grill! I don’t know if it is my favorite rub, but it sure is wonderful!
Sorry we missed a week! We were traveling and ended up stranded at an airport, so things didn’t really work out like we planned. Don’t worry though, three new recipes are in the works and will be coming up soon!
