Fantastic Rub Recipe

I posted this recipe shortly after I first started my blog and I maybe had one reader. Since it's the grilling season and I have a couple of more readers, I thought I would share it again. This recipe was given to me by my late friend, Steven. I have used it on beef, pork, venison, and chicken and it is absolutely wonderful! It's easy to make and you can adjust the ingredients according to your taste.


  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of salt 
  • 2-3 tablespoons of chipolte chili powder 


In a bowl, add enough olive oil to create a paste with the above ingredients. Whisk thoroughly with a fork until mixed. 
Go slow with the olive oil. The ingredients need to mix, but you don't want the end result to be liquid.

(Vary the amount of chili powder to suit your taste. Some like it hot, others not so much. Same for the minced garlic.)

Apply liberally to beef, pork, chicken, venison, or other wild game. Allow 2-3 hours marinade time, if you like. The meat can be baked, broiled, or grilled. The rub can also be applied to the meat while it is on the grill.

Since the wife is out of comission and she does most if not all of the grilling..... I'll give it a shot. How's the fishing going???
