The Best Part of Summer

I love cooking, I love baking, I read recipes for fun and find grocery shopping more than exhilarating. I could be in my kitchen for hours on end (before kids, of course) chopping and mixing and braising and serving. That being said, I could retire my duties for the entire summer and only eat grilled chicken. It is the easiest thing to throw together and I leave most of the cooking to Danny, but I look forward to it all day and it never disappoints. I intended to take a picture of my plate of chicken, corn on the cob, and roasted potatoes, but I didn't get to the picture taking fast enough so the spice rub and pre/post pictures of the chicken will have to do.

This BBQ rub was adapted from Weber's Real Grilling cookbook (for the kids, I used olive oil and Montreal Chicken Seasoning):

2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chile powder
1 tsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp cumin
