Easy and tasty. Maybe a tad salty, though that may vary with the brand of ham, I think Thanks!

This made a delicious rub for our gammon steaks tonight! I omitted the salt as I find gammon ham salty anyway. As it was not BBQ weather here today, we used our George Foreman grill as we had thin steaks and used a smoked oil spray to give some smoly flavour. Next time, I would lessen the cayenne pepper and use paprika in its place as I found it had a little too much heat for my personal preference- I like spices mild! I also put the rub on the meat a few hours ahead of time and the flavours developed nicely. Thanks for a keeper of a recipe!

Excellent combination!!!! I substituted paprika for cayenne. My husband loved the flavor of the spices! Our whole family devoured the ham! I loved how easy it was to throw together too! Thanks for sharing!

Added a really nice flavour to normal everyday ham. I sub'd the cayenne with essence spice. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent. Just what I was looking for. Spicy and not sweet at all (the brown sugar was hardly noticed). I omitted the salt as ham is naturally salty and the chili powder has salt in it. This was the perfect compliment to the grilled flavor. I cooked mine over natural lump charcoal. Thanks for posting.

I used 2 large bone-in ham steaks because that was what I had in the freezer and I didn't have any cayenne pepper. Other ingredients were used exactly as listed. Grilled about 3 1/2 minutes each side on my indoor grill at slightly higher than medium heat which made beautiful char markings. My husband loved it! Not too spicy at all but maybe that was the missing cayenne? I served with a loaded baked potato and salad. Very fast & yummy weekday supper. Next time I'll try with the wine! :-) Updated to add stars - I submitted without any last time - sorry.

I loved this rub it was really quick and easy I used ham left overs grilled on a fry pan inside. My picky eater was pleased so I will do this again thank you

Whew!! Too hot for me. I used ALL of the rub on about 1lb of steaks. I don't recommend doing that unless you know you can handle the heat.
