There are a lot of different recipe combinations for dry rubs, this is one that I really like the best, and have been using quite often lately. Rub on your meat and refrigerate overnight for maximum flavor.

  2. Rub onto the meat.
  3. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for a minimum of 8 hours overnight is even better).

Used this for barbequed chicken and hubby really liked it, but it was much too strong (spicy) for me. I agree with the last reviewer, next time I will reduce the cumin and cayenne. Thanks for posting Kitten :)

We used this recipe for pork ribs. I added a couple of hickory chips to the grill to give them a little smoke flavor. The aroma while cooking is just fantastic. Most of the family doesn't like spicy dishes so I did not use the cayenne. I felt the cumin came on to strongly and will cut it in half the next time.
