1/2 cup brown sugar, very loosely packed
2 tbsp garlic powder (I actually used garlic salt)
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp salt (omit if you use garlic salt)
2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp thyme
1 tsp onion powder
The instructions are easy enough- its so simple that even a caveman can do it (holler, Geico):
Mix all ingredients together thoroughly. Yep, thats it. It doesn't even matter which ingredient goes in first!
If you plan on giving the rub as a gift, you can find small jars at Michael's or use an old spice jar that you have. Complete with a handwritten label and a sassy bow and you've got a gift that dad is sure to actually use!
