It seems like whenever there is a BBQ the men seem to congregate around the grill, am I right? I’m not sure what it is, but it’s a natural phenomenon… the men hang out by the grill while the women have to keep reminding them to check the meat and not overcook it! So I decided that a set of homemade spice rubs would be a good gift for any grilling man – whether he is a beginner or more advanced!
First, I found these cute little magnetic spice containers at my local Fred Meyer, but I also found these online at the Container Store – I’m sure there are lots of options!
I decided on three very different spice mixes: a brown sugar rub, a tandoori rub (Indian flavors), and a Greek rub… but just Google “spice rub recipes” and you are sure to find something that you’ll love – there are lots of them out there!
