My favorite BBQ restaurant is 17th Street Bar & Grill. I enjoy their BBQ and have enjoyed reading Mike Mills’ book “Peace, Love, and Barbecue”. It’s chocked full of recipes and today I put together a batch of Mike’s rub that he calls, “Magic Dust”.
I had all of the ingredients in my cupboard, so I figured it was time that I kept with one of my New Year’s resolutions and tried something different. When I got the rub together, I compared it with the little bit of store bought Magic Dust that I had left. It looks, smells, and tastes pretty darned closed to the commercial version.
It’s on the pork butts now. I’ll be firing the smoker this evening and will report back on the end results.
