Pork Rib Dry Rub and Grilled Potatoes

Tonight Brad grilled... I'm still not allowed near the grill. A girl starts the grill on fire once and NO one seems to forget it! It was only once, and it didn't ruin the grill. Oh well, I'd rather be cooking in the kitchen anyway. This rib rub was great, but I will warn you... it packs quite a punch. The initial taste's sweet, but after a few chews you start to feel the burn. If you like spicy things you may up the cheyenne a little, but if you're leery of heat you may reduce it. We also had my favorite grilled potatoes. The outside gets crunchy while the inside's soft like a baked potato. The grill gives great flavor. They're a very easy side dish if your already grilling. Enjoy... we sure did :)

2-3 tsp. pepper
2-3 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 cup brown sugar
3 tsp. salt

Mix all ingredients and rub onto ribs before grilling.
4 potatoes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 - 2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp parsley
cooking spray
Bake potatoes in microwave until they're tender, but not mushy. Slice in 1/2 inch thick slices (so they look like circles). Lightly spray with cooking spray. Mix all spices and sprinkle over potatoes. Grill until crisp on both sides.

Your dry rub for ribs looks yummy. I love dry rubs especially those that contain brown sugar and not to mention the cayenne pepper. My family likes it kind of spicy so this recipe works well for us.

The brown sugar and cayenne pepper sounds like a great combination. I've never tried potatoes on the grill before, but those look out of this world.

I love grill nights - that's man's work! Potatoes on the grill sounds good. A new thing for my hubby to try.

I read all the spices and I immediately sneezed (power of suggestion because I'm a spice wuss!) but it does sound very good indeed!

Pile on the potatoes. They look yummy!
