Lone Star Dry Rub
A dry rub is a mixture of spices that serves the same purpose as a marinade. It coats the surface of food, enhancing the flavor and during the cooking process adds a crusty texture. This is an all-purpose rub, suitable on almost anything you barbecue. Add or subtract spices according to your tastes or to complement whatever you’re smoking.
