Kim's Barbecue and Smoking Rub

READY IN: 4mins
Recipe by Moonbeemz

I winged this recipe last week and it came out great on a smoked pork loin. Feel free to add some cayenne or use your favorite paprika instead of the generic supermarket spices. If you aren't smoking your meat, you may wish to add more cumin or use smoked paprika instead.

I found this recipe tonight while looking for a sweet dry rub for pork tenderloin. I butterflied the pork, rubbed this delicious dry rub on both sides and slapped it on the grill. It was just what I was looking for! The sugar in the rub carmelized beautifully and all of the spices blended together just perfectly. Thanks for a great ricepe! I plan to use this for grilled salmon this week as well. Great sweet dry rub for just about any meat.
