Fourth of July Rub and Wash

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by BeachGirl

We used this for a Fourth of July barbeque, and really enjoyed its little different flavor on ribs and chicken. Add more or less cayenne depending upon how hot you like it!

So it's not the 4th of July yet, big deal! This stuff is great on chicken! I cut back to 1 tablespoon of cinnamon because I have a daughter who claims she's "allergic". With all the other goodies in this rub she didn't even notice! I totally smotherd some cut up chicken in this, left it to hang in the fridge for an hour, then cooked it on the grill. Yowza!
