Spice Rub for Pork or Chicken

"I make a big batch of this and keep it on hand for quick prep. This combination f spices and herbs work really well together and has a lovely mild smoke flavour to it. Rub it into all the crevices of the meat and let it sit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before cooking the meat, this allows the spices and herbs to permeate the meat. This recipe makes enough rub for 10 pounds of meat."
