Pequin pepper area native to Mexico and rank in heat somewhere between a jalapeño and a habanero. This rub is a perfect balance of heat if you wanna kick things up a notch!
Why two steps?
By separating the two different layers and steps, you’ve locked in flavor internally with the Base Coat, while still being able to apply as much Sweet Heat Honey Pequin Rub as desired-all without over salting. Wait at least 10 minutes before adding meat to grill. Need a little more salt and spice next time? Add more Base Coat.
