The barbecue rub from Flame Tree Barbecue in Disney’s Animal Kingdom will make your taste buds sing! I made this for my husband, (I am a vegetarian) and he thought it was amazing and now wants to put it on a variety of grilled meats. We applied the rub to boneless skinless chicken breast and then grilled it. I imagine it would be delicious on beef, pork or chicken. Whipping up this recipe took hardly any time, but the meat needs to marinade for 2-3 hours before cooking. I cut the measurements in half since the full recipe makes 2 cups of rub and we did not need quite that much. And now, the moment we have all been waiting for…. The recipe!!

Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
¼ cup Lawry’s Seasoning Salt
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 tablespoons cumin
2 teaspoons garlic salt
2 teaspoons onion powder

Ingredients

This is where things get really complicated… throw all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir until combined…

…wait, that wasn’t so bad!! Once the ingredients are combined, apply to the meat of your choice and let marinate for two to three hours. Do not marinate much longer than this or you risk drying out your meat and that’s not good.

Once the marinade time is complete, grill up and dig in!

The potatoes I served as a side are another Disney recipe, Maui Scalloped Potatoes, this recipe can be found on my blog, Disney Travel and Leisure. I recommend enjoying a glass of wine and listening to music from the Animal Kingdom Lodge while relishing your meal. A great soundtrack can be found on YouTube!

I hope you enjoy this delicious and easy meal!

This recipe along with many others is found in Chef Mickey by Pam Brandon and The Disney Chefs.
