Smokey Paste for Pulled Pork

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by gingerkitten D

I have a smoker, but it is a pain to use frequently...I think this rub gives a pleasantly smokey flavor to your meat...without the smoke....add more cayenne if you need more heat..

I mixed this up exactly as written, and had it on a pork tenderloin. While it was a bit spicy for my taste, I found myself becoming strangely addicted to the flavor and couldn't resist a quick bite of pork each time I passed the fridge. Will make this again, but I'll probably cut back on the cayenne pepper, and possible a bit on the black pepper as well.
