Memphis Dry Rub  #HandBlendedHave you ever stopped to think of how much you may you pay for specialty blended grilling spices? I sure have, about a year ago I was on a mission to seriously save a few pennies here and there. I stopped to think of what Household items or even Grocery items I might be able to rally to save money on. 

My fancy spice rack caught my eye; I had blended spices up the yin-yang. Which means a ton of money was being wasted on something I could easily make in large or small quantities. SO I decided to sit down and a start saving money. This was one of the first spices I stopped spending $5-6 bucks a small bottle on.
