This year for Father’s Day the family and I decked out my dad’s new grill with tools (since he melted all his old ones to the grill by accident this spring), gadgets and a variety of rubs. Among some of my favorite gifts were a Chicken Roaster and a Chili-Lime Rub. I used these to make a great beer can chicken the other night, its a classic grill favorite that everyone should try!

  • 1/4 C. Olive Oil
