Firehouse Spicy BBQ Dry Rub recipe

This special Firehouse Spicy dry rub was developed mostly for shrimp but don't worry, it's great on just about anything that you want extra spicy.

Warning though, some people find this rub really spicy. If that's the case then just reduce the amount of red pepper flakes.

The first time I made this recipe for shrimp the girls in our family couldn't eat it, just a bit too hot for them.

Some people won't let on though, you can tell though when the tears are running down their cheeks...

This has been especially created for the Firehouse Grilled Shrimp.

BBQ Chicken is also a natural for this dry rub as it absorbs the flavors almost as easily as shrimp does.

Consider making a double batch of this rub, it keeps really well in a sealed glass jar for months.
