I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
All Purpose Rub
...in your mind.

All Purpose Rub

There shouldn't be any questions about this - it is exactly as it sounds. Outside of your basic salt/pepper blend - you can use this almost anywhere. Eggs, yes. Fish, yes. Roasted corn, yes. See where I'm going? Cereal? Don't be ridiculous...I said almost anywhere.
