"This rub is so simple! It's made with the everyday spices you have in your cupboard. I rub it on everything from chicken to pork to burgers to steak. I keep it in a Ziploc® bag in the freezer. It's always ready to go! Double or triple your ingredients so you always have it on hand."

This recipe turned out excellent. I made multiple batches, and substituted cayenne for chipotle in one of them. This tasted amazing on a pork roast. Everyone loved it.

Great, classic and simple rub recipe! I usually do a rub just like this, but I add just a tad of cumin. A little cumin goes a long way in adding that little bit of extra flavor.
