Mix all ingredients together. Store in sealed container for up to one week in refrigerator.

To use, toss with two to four chicken breasts or pork chops in a tight fitting sealed container and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes. Be sure to give it a shake once in a while so that all of the bits of meat get coated with the good stuff! Grill on low on preheated bbq, turning every 5 minutes until finished.
