This was a guarded recipe for myself from my upcoming restaurant, Jose Smoke. My father, Jose, taught me how to grill and smoke, so I wanted to create a recipe that showcases BBQ with latin infused flavors! Note: You can use any prepared dry rub that you'd like in this recipe, but I like to make my own. Try mixing 1 teaspoon sugar with 1/3 teaspoon each of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add touches of paprika, cumin, chili powder, garlic and onion powders to make it your own.
