All Purpose Rub

All Purpose Rub

This is as basic and standard as they come – but oh so tasty!  I use this on everything – pork, chicken, veggies, fish – everything.  If you want to kick it up for a more Cajun style flavor, just crank up the cayenne (try adding a 1/2 tsp at a time).  Cool it off for a sweeter taste – reduce cayenne & increase sugar.  As is, this will get you started making homemade rubs.  Now go make it your own.
