I have made this several times already in 2 weeks. The first time I made it on pork my husband said it was the best pork he ever had and wanted to try the rub/basting sauce on chicken on the grill. We used chicken thigh/wing/leg pieces and put the rub on the night before and grilled slowly the next day- I had all of my guests telling me I should have started a barbeque business! No extra sauce needed for the chicken! This is a fantastic recipe and I have had everyone asking for the recipe. Would try this on almost any meat.
