It IS spring, right? Here in Alaska we aren't so sure, since today (May 2nd) it is snowing!! I have to stay positive and plan for future barbeque's though, so here is a QUICK and SUPER EASY dry rub to use the next time you grill outdoors. It may look a little on the sweet side, but the final product is NOT overly sweet, it is perfect.
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup salt
1 teaspoon onion powder (not onion salt)
1 tablespoon coarse ground pepper
pinch of cayenne pepper (or to taste)
2 tablespoons paprika
Mix well and keep in jar with a tight lid. To use, brush your pork or chicken lightly with vegetable oil and then rub this mixture onto the surface of the meat about 20 minutes before grilling. It couldn't be easier!!
