Tim Love's Wild Game Rub

Chef Tim Love created this peppery spice blend for big cuts of meat, but he uses it for everything from yucca chips to chiles rellenos. His favorite flavoring in the rub: ground guajillo chiles. "Besides being fun to say [gwah-HEE-yoh], I like the fruity flavor," he says. If you can't find guajillos, substitute smoky ancho powder.
