Maybe it’s because I love exotic locales. Or maybe it’s because I barely passed science. But for whatever reason I’m fascinated by spice rubs. To me they represent years of tinkering, experimenting and tasting until the perfect formulation is reached.
I picked up this little baby in Maui and it has brought new meaning to the word chicken in my household. Just mix a tablespoon of this magic plus two cloves chopped garlic and 1/4 cup olive oil, let marinade a few hours and pop on the grill. Sweet, savory, moist chicken is that close.
If you can’t make it to Maui to pick some up, check out this website (pricing the same as it was on the island, although you’ll have to spring for shipping).
