Jer’s BBQ Rub

It seems as though I took June off, from posting that is. T and I have both been very busy on the work front, but now it’s time to get back to serious business: Eating, Drinking and Playing with my Dog.  We went to a friend’s house for a little Canada Day Celebration.  It was a great time to relax and partake. Addy and Irene have two beautiful kids and two beautiful dogs. Ads also has the classic Weber charcoal BBQ. It was the perfect time for me to test out my new BBQ Rub on someone else besides my wife.  I brought along some chicken thighs and let the taste-test begin. At this point I only have a propane BBQ and it’s only got one good year left in it.  The master plan is that next spring I’m getting a new Weber Propane Grill and a new Weber Charcoal Grill.  So this was a great chance to test drive Addy’s BBQ. There is nothing like cooking with real coals.  But for speed and heat accuracy (when I’m spinning a pork shoulder on the rotisserie for 6 hours) I still like the propane with a little help from a smoker-box. So, obviously, I need both.

One last quick note: The pic above is part of the grub we got elbow deep in at Addy and Irene’s.  He did the prawns (shell-on) tossed in just a little olive oil and minced garlic and we whipped up a little Basil Aioli (1/4 cup mayo, 1/2 garlic clove minced, 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil).  De-Lish!

Here is the Rub Recipe.  Don’t be shy when working it into you meat.   It works great with Chicken and Pork. It should last you a few trips to the BBQ.  I’ve done 2 dozen thighs 4 pork loin chops and I still have enough for the 8 pound aforementioned shoulder that I’m going to spin this Saturday.  I need a drool-cup already and it’s only Wednesday.  Happy BBQing!!

    The recipe sounds very interesting! I think I may make a 1/4 of it and rub it on a whole chicken, sounds delicious!
