Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp regular paprika
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • pinch cinnamon
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl combine all ingredients. Whisk well to combine and try to get rid of any lumps.
  2. To use, pour some of the rub on a large plate and use your hands to rub it onto whatever raw meat (or vegetables) you're planning to grill (you can also use this in the oven!). Rub it in well and try to get into any crevices and on all sides. Let meat sit at least 10 minutes at room temperature or longer in the fridge before cooking. Some people recommend wrapping it in plastic wrap and refrigerating it for an hour for best results. DO NOT put your hands back in the original bowl of rub if you plan to save it for next time - just have someone else add more to the plate if needed. Clean hands and cutting board well.
  3. Store any extra dry rub mix (that you haven't touched with raw meat or dirty hands) in an airtight container in a dark cupboard.
