With the 4th of July weekend here, and cookouts in full force, you will surely want to give this rub a try. It is a great all-purpose barbecue rub that tastes wonderful on ribs, chicken, pork, beef, veggies….burgers….well, just about anything you want to put it on. Make some and keep it handy. And find what you like it best on. I made this up and gave it to the girls in the office for Christmas – makes a great present for any occasion.
Makes 2 cups
1 cup chili powder
3 Tablespoons paprika
3 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh thyme
2 Tablespoons coarse salt
2 Tablespoons garlic powder
1 Tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
2 Tesapoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper( or less, to taste)
Place all ingredients in a large bowl; whisk to combine. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
Great on Chicken, Ribs, brisket, pork tenderloin, shrimp,
And if you like to grill vegetables, this is great – just large chop your favorite vegetables (such as mushrooms, onions, cherry tomatoes, squash, bell pepper, zucchini), drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with rub, toss and grill on skewers or in grill pan – and enjoy!
