This Spicy Dry Rub makes a wonderful gift over the holiday season, as a housewarming, or anytime, really.
Mixing up a large batch of this dry rub is so quick and easy and makes a great gift for family and friends, neighbors, or even as a teacher gift – especially for men who love to smoke and/ or grill.
But, if you are like me, you’ll want to keep a batch of this dry rub in your kitchen at all times. It is so delicious and works perfectly with pork, chicken, and beef. It is sort of a do-all dry rub recipe.
You’ll use basic ingredients that are most likely already in your kitchen, but in just the right amounts to make the perfect spicy dry rub that you’ll turn to time and again for so many dishes and recipes.
Here’s my Spicy Dry Rub recipe. I hope you love it as much as we do!
