Happy Father's Day.....Here's to the Meat Lovers!

This may be a bit of an overgeneralization.....but what do some dad's enjoy most?  



With all these wonderful sunny days, I can only imagine that this weekend will bring with it barbecuing, cookouts and celebrating the men and dads in our lives.  So if dad doesn't want to be the chef this weekend, then you can at least serve up some grilled steak and as a gift, prepare some DIY Dry Rubs!
