Today is the first day of college football for the year. I graduated from Rutgers in 2010 and football games are some of my best memories. I remember getting on the bus to the stadium and everyone yelling our school chant, then tailgating for hours before the game. It was so fun. Why do I have to be old now?! Can’t we turn back time?!
Rutgers joined the big 10 this year, so hopefully they don’t get completely clobbered all season. That would be so upsetting.
What does BBQ Seasoning Rub have to do with football? Nothing. There’s no way we had enough spices to make this for tailgates and even if we did, I definitely wouldn’t have wanted to share with all the other people there!
My husband and I registered for a spice rack when we got married. Well, we didn’t realize that it came with spices in it as well so now we have WAY too many spices. I’m trying to get rid of as much as possible.
This rub is really versatile. I’ve used it on chicken legs, chicken thighs, chicken breasts (basically the whole chicken), pulled pork and pork chops. I’m sure that you could use it on a million other things. My husband loves it so much that he puts it on cheesesteaks. The recipe below makes a lot. We love it so I don’t mind, but you could definitely cut down to make only what you need.
