My New Dependence Issue

Farmers Market Friends:

Several years ago I made a friend through Cub Scouts whose son was in Pack 3 Hope Valley with my boy Colin.  Chatting on one of our hikes while the kids were scrambling around boulders Scott shared with me his passion for making hot sauce and BBQ rubs.  Would I like to maybe try some ??  Would I ??  Does the neighbor’s bird-feeder hunting cat need to taste a hot lead sandwich ??

Of course.  The Mojo dry rub made with powdered ancho and chipotle peppers, herbs and a touch of brown sugar (??) is amazing for pulled pork and chili.  I keep little plastic jars of it on hand for give-aways if people buy a large selection of delicious and healthy 100% grass-fed dry aged beef from Treaty Rock Farm produced LOCALLY, NATURALLY & HUMANELY.
I have recently come to grips with the fact that I get nervous if my Mojo supply drops to under 6 jars and call Scott to renew my prescription.  My name is Pat and I have a dry rub dependence issue.  He also makes Valley Spice Chipotle hot sauce for stir frys and on scrambled eggs.  Excellent.  Recently Scott welcomed his first grandchild and is already showing the boy around the kitchen.  They cooked together a week or so ago and the lad was overheard telling Mom he was all set with the strained butternut squash but could he please have a rack of ribs with Papa’s Bar-B-Q sauce ??  Way to go !!!  I thought perhaps you might like to make some for your favorite toddler.
