This was very tasty, I used it to jazz up some grilled shrimp. I really like the inclusion of the celery salt (I make my own with less salt then the commercial brands), and the allspice. Made for ZWT 9 by one of The Appliance Killers

What can I say other than "wonderful"! I made this rub to use on last nights dinner for hubby and I. I put this on the beef that I was using to make shish kabobs. The funny part is that I had every ingredient (rarely ever happens). Another great thing is that I also made Cajun-Grilled Corn on the Cob, which had a lot of similarities. The 2 dishes complimented each other perfectly! This recipe is a keeper. Thank you for sharing. (Made forZWT9 - Cajun)

Made this this afternoon and it packs a nice flavor punch. I tried it out on a cheese sandwich and I may never have a plain one again. If it made a cheese sandwich soar just imagine what it will do for chicken, beef or pork! Houston, we have a keeper.
