Paleo Dry Rub

I am not a huge fan of smoked meat because it makes me nauseous.  Literally.  Every time I go to a BBQ with smoked meat and have a cocktail, I feel like I might puke and think I drank too much.  Then I look down and realize I haven’t even finished a single drink!  You’d think I would learn my lesson, but I still make the mistake of having smoked meat at least once a year.  Oh well.  If you are a grill master and love to smoke some ribs, this rub is an awesome option.   It isn’t much different from any regular rub recipe you may find except for the fact that the sugar is coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is similar to brown sugar because it has that molasses hint to it.  However, it comes from coconut sap instead of sugar beets.  Sugar beets are often genetically modified, so if you are trying to stay GMO-free, coconut sugar may be a great swap!
