This is a rub recipe that I have been using the last few years for all types of meats. This is just a basic recipe. It can be easily adjusted to your own taste (start with the lower amounts of each ingredient and build up because it is VERY spicy). This recipe makes a batch equal to approx 2 cups. It will keep fresh for months if stored air tight in a cool, dark place (kitchen cabinet or pantry). *Note: I make it in bulk and fill little 4 oz baby food jars (labels off and decorated, of course), to give as gifts to neighbors and friends over the holidays (See Step #2). I hope you enjoy my rub recipe. (If you want to make a "one time use" batch, my friend has a very similar, but ever so slightly different, version you may wish to try... Recipe #504036 by LifeIsGood).
