This Father's Day gift is genius! It can be quite difficult to find just the right gift for the 'old man' but this idea is super! I love the large button at the top and the jar once empty can easily be refilled by making more of the easy recipe of the grilling rub, or repurposing the jar for cuff links, coins or nails. But Imhave to say, even this recipe looks good too! What a brilliant idea! Love it!
