Recipe

Pork has been one of my favorite things to throw on the grill lately.  With a simple spice rub, this lean protein source can really pack in the flavor.  This Southwestern inspired rub starts with a blend of brown sugar, paprika, and chili powder if you want things spicy.  From there the garlic powder, ginger, and cinnamon round things out to make a perfect spice rub for pork, chicken, or fish.
