Sweet & Spicy Rub

I came up with this sweet and spicy rub yesterday.  I have watched plenty of cooking shows; they throw this and that into a rub, so I decided to do the same.  Boy, was it good.  The house smelled amazing while this ham roast cooked.  I think this rub would be good on any meat.

Here is how I made it.  1/2 C brown sugar and 1 tsp. of the following:  salt, pepper, chili powder, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, dried minced onion mix it all together.




The last hog butchered, we decided not to smoke the ham.  Rather, have them cut it into ham roasts.  Spread the sweet and spicy rub over the meat and massage it in.  




Make sure to get all the sides.  Bake low and slow for several hours - you could put this in the crock pot as well.   I did mine at 250 for 6 hours the last 30 min. at 350.  





Take the meat out of the pan and slice it up.  




I think I am going to mix up a batch of this sweet & spicy rub and put it in a mason jar.  That way, it is all ready to use when I need it.  I think it might taste great on roasted vegetables as well.   

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

This sounds great!! We inherited a smoker over the fall. This rub would be great for smoking a pork shoulder!
