I felt like I was at a restaurant while I was eating these! Incredible flavors that will impress all your dinner guests. The rub was delicious and would actually taste great on almost any type of meat. A great meal for a weekend BBQ, make the rub ahead of time, apply to the meat and let it sit in the refrigerator for the day.
