  • DELICIOUS! This rub will be going into regular rotation! I was a bit concerned originally when reading that it makes more than what you need, but now I wish I'd made even more! Also, I didn't have cumin seeds, just ground cumin, and it was still great, but next time, I'm getting the seeds for sure! - 9/8/11
