You could go out an buy a super expensive gift for your favorite griller (or yourself), but homemade gifts are so much more fun. Make a bunch of from-the-heart rubs to give out. They're an inexpensive gift option and you won't spend any time in a crowded mall. It's a win-win situation.

Steven gives you ideas about what flavors to combine:

Outside of myself, the only other person in my family (both sides) that I know barbecues is my mom's brother-in-law. This might be a good idea for a gift for him.

I read this article and I really enjoyed it.

However, Steven said that even tofu is sometimes used in rubs, and that's something I'd never heard of.

Steven - do you have a link or a recipe or something as an example? My curiosity is piqued. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

CG, it says rubs are used ON tofu.

I had to read it twice myself to be sure.

OK - now that makes more sense. Tofu takes on the taste of whatever you season it with so that's a good idea.
