Earlier in the month after my trip to Fitbloggin, I took a quick trip to Florida to visit with my dad. He’s lived on the northeastern coast of Florida for the past several years… retiring to his version of paradise. After spending the previous 10+ years in Green Bay, you can understand why this Guy was looking for sunny, hot days as he was planning his retirement.
Since my dad has retired, he’s become quite the cook. As a kid, I don’t remember him cooking much. Grilling, yes. Cooking, not so much. That being said, it’s fun to see him enjoying something I love to do so much.
It seems like every time I get down there, I bring back a beautiful tan as well as a few recipes to share with you guys. Remember the Bacon Cauliflower Lettuce Salad??
This trip, we ate a lot of grilled foods… all sprinkled with my dad’s spice rub. A little sweet, a little spicy, I had a chance to watch him make it and to capture all his secret ingredients.
I made my first batch last weekend, and it was AWESOME. I know this is something I’ll be shaking on grilled meats for months to come. Thanks, Dad, for sharing the recipe with me (and subsequently with the rest of NTTC!)
