    Sounds real good. I'd throw it together and give it a try. Cherry Kool-Aid huh? That sounds interesting. Sweetened or unsweetend? Let us know how it works out.
  3. it is un sweetened, but i am thinking of cutting some of the sugar and using one of the kool single serve pouches that you mix in a bottle of water... The rub tastes good doing the scientific lick the finger and try it. I would really like to find some chipotle powder locally and use that as the heat instead of the pepper and cayenne.

    I agree with the Chipotle, I would substitute the Smoked Paprika, Cayenne for it. Chili powder?? Why not Red Chile powder (mild to medium is good), I use it with the Chipotle with garlic and pepper for a superb pork seasoning. I don't actually recall ever buying Chili powder, is that what they use for taco seasoning?? does it have other spices in it?? I really do not know, I use only Red Chile powder for mine, here in NM it is a must. For 'lead in the pencil' you could use the XXX hot Red Chile powder and loose the red pepper flakes.
    But it sounds real good with the Kool-aid in it.
    I may have to try it.

    I think you have a good start there, I would try a little cumin and some green, oregano or bassil, tyme. Just a little green till you get where you want ,thats just a thot. The Kool-aid is somethimg I have done for years, try other flavors, you will be amazed how it brings other flavors out.
