If you're looking for something to spice up your BBQs, you have to check out Will Cook for Smiles' recipe for the Ultimate Meat Rub. Rub it on some chicken wings, steak or even roast vegies - whether you're grilling, smoking or cooking!


Tbs dark brown sugar
4 Tbs smoked paprika can substitute regular paprika
2 Tbs coarse salt
1 Tbs ground black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
tsp onion powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp cayenne pepper


1. Combine all spices and herbs in a bowl and mix very well. (You can also combine it in a jar with a lid, close the lid and shake well to mix.) 
2. Dry rub can be used right away or stored for up to 6 months. 
To use: spread mixed dry rub in a rimmed baking sheet or a large bowl, whichever fits the meat you are using best. Add meat and generously rub it all over with the dry rub, getting every nook and cranny, while massaging the dry rub into the meat.
4. To store: For the best way to keep dry rubs fresh, use a zip-lock freezer bag and store it in the freezer. Get as much air out of the bag as you can before sealing it. Or in an airtight jar in the fridge.
