meat rubs

Going camping in two weeks, pretty psyched to spend 5 days in the woods drinking beer and grilling big pieces of meat. Made a few dry rubs and chili powder today with a mess of toasted chilis, coffee, brown sugar, bunch of other stuff.

The Italian Market Spice Co (not to be confused with the Spice Corner) is the best place for picking up everything from sea salt, smoked paprika, and almost any herb or spice you could think of for super affordable prices. They also have the lowest price on saffron I've seen in the city, and there's always some sweet frank sinatra or motown playing over the speakers.

Don't ever pay $15 for a 1/2 oz of organic free-range lithuanian monk - stroked peppercorns at whole foods ever again.
