Sweet, Spicy and Smokey Dry Rub

Standard

I try to give a little “thank you” whenever I’m hosting a gathering.  Since I’d decided on a “pulled meat” competition I thought I’d make some dry rub meat seasoning for a little gift.

I found these cute little kraft boxes at Hobby Lobby and I made the tags on my computer using a “business card” template.  I forgot to take a picture of all the spices but I just put everything together and used a mini food processor to combine.  Then I scooped them into tiny baggie type bags and then put the bags of seasoning into these boxes.  Here’s the original link ( http://kneadtocook.com/sweet-spicy-and-smoky-dry-rub)  & recipe:

Ingredients:

3/4 cup of light brown sugar
2 tablespoons of salt (I used Lo Salt reduced sodium alternative)
1 tablespoon of chipotle chili powder
1 tablespoon of smoked paprika
1 tablespoon of garlic powder
2 teaspoons of ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Directions:  Place everything into a mini food processor, Vitamix or you can mix by hand or by adding everything to a tupperware container with a lid.  Process until well-combined.  Store in a container with a lid for up to 6-9 months.

This can be used on chicken, pork or beef.  Rub a generous amount on the meat and refrigerate for best results up to 24 hours or a minimum of 1 hour.  Place the meat on a hot grill and cook until desired temperature is achieved.  Enjoy!
