Cooks Options

Savory and sweet rubs are great to use. Sweet heat is great too with the southwest crowds. I like to use a Savory dry rub on one side of the beans and a sweet dry rub on the other side.
Remember you are grilling so make it fun and if you think you didn’t add enough brown sugar or bacon, ADD MORE! LOL
