We had the privilege of dining at the Thornton's home in December. Gene has developed a meat rub that is outstanding and he actually shared the recipe. So here it is for those you like the idea of a dry rub for their meat.
Gene Thornton's Meat Rub
Equal Parts: Black Pepper, Season Salt, Onion Powder and Garlic Powder
1/2 as much Kosher Salt
and, if you like 1/4 as much Celery Salt
Mix all ingredients together - place in a sealed container and store in a cupboard that doesn't get too warm.
I purchased a 2.62 oz container of onion powder (which measured 1/2 cup) so that is the measurement I used for the remainder of the "equal parts"
