Sweet BBQ Rub

Yum
One of my favorite tasting BBQ sauces is KC Masterpiece (the original). However, with 1.2 points for only 2 Tbs, and knowing I will need quite a bit more than that when barbecuing chicken or ribs, I hate the thought of a lot of my food points being taken up just from the sauce!
I have discovered an excellent dry BBQ rub recipe that can be used in place of BBQ sauce and the entire recipe is only 1.8 points! That's virtually zero points used for ribs or chicken breasts, yet it's incredibly tasty! Mix and use this Sweet BBQ rub in place of the sauces and enjoy the wonderful taste of BBQ minus all the points.
