BBQ Rub Recipe {Gifts from the Kitchen}

With the Holidays approaching, some of the hardest people on our list are men! You can only buy so many drills or ties.  How about trying this BBQ Rub Recipe and giving it to your BBQ enthusiasts. As part of my Gifts from the Kitchen, this BBQ Rub goes well with my Coffee BBQ Sauce and is easy enough to have the kids mix up. It’s also perfect for those last minute gifts, neighbor gifts, teacher gifts……….especially if they’re male! It goes well with my Homemade BBQ Sauce.
