Burgers and hot dogs are staples of an All-American cookout, and are undoubtably on the menu for your Fourth of July celebrations. Guests expect to eat them, and hosts plan on preparing both on their grills each year. Consistency doesn’t mean monotony, though, and just because burgers and hot dogs are expected to be at your home doesn’t mean your burgers and hot dogs have to be predictable. To keep your guests guessing while still offering some classic options, here are eight recipes to grill while you celebrate Independence Day.

1. Sweet Spice Rub

With just a tiny bit of heat, Smoked ‘n Grilled’s spice rub is saved from being overly sweet. You’ll have enough with this rub recipe to generously season six large burgers on both sides, but if you’re serving a crowd, you’ll definitely want to make a double or triple batch.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

Directions: Mix all the ingredients together into a bowl. If you have an empty spice container with a shaker top and lid on it, this would work well. You can store any leftovers in the empty spice jar, as well, or in a tupperware container.
