Mums Rib Rub Mmmmm Good!

Ike and I are now on another little vaction.  This time we are back east with family.  The weather has been hot and muggy and very condusive to outdoor grilling.  So what's on the menu for today is simple grilled pork chops.  Mum makes this rub and stores the extra in a container until the next time.  She has used it on chicken and pork with equal success.  If you are looking for something easy, fast, and tasty....give this a try.

Mums Rib Rub
1 Tbsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
4 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp black pepper
2 Tbsp cumin
2 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cayenne
1/4 cup paprika

Combine all in a small bowl.  Mix well.  Add 1/3 cup to a bag large enough to shake up your piece of meat. Save the remaining rub for another use.  Coat meat with rub by shaking up one piece of meat at a time in the bag, then remove piece and drizzle with olive oil. Discard remaining rub in the shake up bag.  Grill over preheated meduim heat grill (400-450F) with the lid closed for one minute per side.  If you have a thermometer, cook to 163F. (Mum recommmends the thermapen digital instant read thermometer)
