    I love this rub. The combination of flavors makes it great. It is delicious on chicken as well as pork and the brown sugar gives it a nice, not too sweet, finish. It stores nicely and goes a long way.

    This is a great spice rub. Put it in Christmas Stockings for Christmas and now they are asking for more! So easy!

    I gave this spice rub out in in gift baskets three months ago at Christmas and nearly everyone has come back to me to ask for the recipe. I have used it myself and have found that it makes a delicious addtion to chicken and fish.

    I agree, this IS it! Spicy Sweet Juicy you name it. Nice kick to the great Salt-n-Pep routine.I cant wait to try it on other meats and veggies

    THIS IS IT! We need something to give as a "thank you", Since they like all kinds of meat I'm sure they will like this rub. Thanks Martha all 5 of the "Edible Gift Ideas" are great.
