Any suggestions for a rub for hot wings? Suggestions on the forum tend to be for prepared rubs, but I'd prefer to make my own. Thanks.

    This works great on many things, pork, poultry, baked potatoes, fresh made tortilla chips.And many other items.

    Rub, Magic Dust, "Indian River Pixie Dust", Richard Fl

    Mike Mills is the only three-time Grand World Champion at the Memphis in May Barbecue Competition and owner or partner in barbecue restaurants in Illinois, New York and Las Vegas. In his James Beard Award-nominated book, Peace, Love & Barbecue (Rodale, 2005), Mills describes Magic Dust as the most popular condiment at all of his restaurants, and the most frequently stolen. He advises that it can also be used on popcorn, baked potatoes or pretty much “anything but ice cream.”

    1/2 cup paprika, (Smoked Optional)
    1/4 cup kosher salt, finely ground, (1/8 Cup)
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 Tbs mustard powder, (Coleman's)
    1/4 cup chili powder

    2 Tbs ground black pepper, ("Indian River Chipotle Rainbow Pepper")
    1/4 cup granulated garlic, (Garlic Powder)
    2 Tbs cayenne, (1 TBS Cayenne, 1 TBS chipotle, ground)

    That sounds wonderful. I think I'll mix up a nice batch of that today just to have on hand.
