Barbecue Dry Rub

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

Great for ribs, pork, and chicken on the grill! Can be used just before cooking, or rubbed in before meats are put into a marinade. :)

I made a double batch as I BBQ a lot and I am so glad I did. I used it on chicken and it was scrumptious. I rubbed the chicken the evening before and left it in the fridge until BBQtime the next day Thanks Sue great rub!
