Barbecue Circuit Rub
Spice Up Your Summer BBQ!
This rub is as classic as it gets. It brings out the best in any meat you barbecue. It hits all the right notes of sweet, savory, spicy, and salty, and it even has a little smoke, courtesy of the natural hardwood smoke from the Spanish paprika. The hardwood dire scents the red peppers before they are dried and ground, making this spice the unsung hero of spice rubs. -- Elizabeth Karmel
