Flame-Licked Fingerling Potatoes with Spud Rub
Created by The BBQ Queens

Use the Spud Rub to season the potatoes (and anything else you got going on the grill!), then stir it into the dipping sauce.

Spud Rub:
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoons lemon pepper
1 ½ teaspoons paprika
1 ½ teaspoons smoked paprika
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon ground cumin

1 pound fingerling potato mix
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Spud Rub

For the rub, combine all ingredients in a glass jar, close the lid, and shake to blend. Store at room temperature.

Prepare a medium-hot fire in your grill. Place the potatoes in a bowl, drizzle with the olive oil, and sprinkle with Spud Rub. Toss to coat.

Place the potatoes on the grill rack or in grill basket directly over the heat and close the grill lid. After 3 to 4 minutes, open the lid and toss the potatoes or turn the basket. Close the lid again and repeat the process for 12 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Makes 4 side dish servings.
