Rub Essentials: Lover’s Caress Spicy Steak Rub

I’ve been messing about with a lot of spice rubs lately, and here’s another one to add to the long list. It’s a spicy rub that’s designed primarily for grilling steaks; however, I have experimented with it on chicken breasts, and even pork chops. It’s spicy, but with a sweet heat that lingers on the lips like a lover’s kiss. Hence the name: Lover’s Caress.

If you decide to use the bourbon, it will blend in with the coconut sugar, and create a perfect blend between sweet and heat.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
