All-Purpose Dry Rub Recipe

Use this rub on any meat or vegetable you're planning to grill. And if you're grilling pork ribs, resist the urge to add sauce at the end. Just coat the ribs with the rub at least an hour in advance and then grill letting all of those little ends get crispy and delicious.
