This is an easy to make dry rub. It is especially good on pork and chicken. This mix creates a spicy/sweet citrus flavor for your next BBQ.

This rub was really good. I decided to try it because it wasn't your run of the mill spice. It doesn't overwhelm the meat or give it a very strong flavor so I ended up sprinkling the rub over the meat after cooking. I sprinkled this on a whole chicken and roasted it. Even tho the skin was very flavorful the meat didn't get a lot of the flavor. Sprinkling the rub over the meat after cooking definitly brought it out tho! Think this would be exceptionally good over pork or chicken and grilled. FYI. I didn't use 1/2 cup of orange mix.. I only used 2 packs of the instant drink mix and it was Sugar Free. Turned out very well! Read More

I used this recipe for something we call "poor man's scallops" due to the shape. First pound out chicken and cut into strips. Second apply rub to chicken. Third lay bacon on top and roll up and place on a skewer and bbq till done. All my guests loved it!! Read More
