DIY BBQ Rub

This will be my husband’s second Father’s Day. It’s such a fun holiday to celebrate. He’s an amazing father and I love doing something special to celebrate him.  Last year we got him a hand crafted leather football which he absolutely adores….so much so that he has it on display and won’t even throw it, lol! This year I thought it would be fun to make something. He’s a fantastic cook and an even better grill master. This DIY BBQ rub seems like a perfect gift!
