‘Happy Summer’ Spice Rub for Burgers

burger spice rub, spice rub for burgers, spicy grilled burger, grilled burger rubFor me summer means burgers.

Outdoor grilling is the best and I love me some summer burgers on the grill. This spice rub is my usual for a burger. Its flavorful and has a little heat, but not too much to turn those off with a tamer taste for spiciness, and it goes great on a turkey, beef or chicken burger.

I usually enjoy these burgers on a lettuce bun with a pickle and some avocado or over a bed a greens. The recipe usually makes enough to season about 4 burgers.

Happy summer!
