DIY Grilling Gift Set: Meat Rub Recipes & Printable

4 easy meat rub recipes

Okay, I just got back from the grocery store from picking up all of my spices to make this Grilling Gift Set for Father’s Day.  It was an eventful trip to the grocery store, apparently everyone goes to the grocery store the day before Father’s day.

I don’t know about you but I have the worst luck in picking a good line to stand in. I stop and observe the lines, the people and the how much is in everyone’s cart but even with all that I still always pick the lane where the lady in front of me takes 30 minutes to get checked out.
