This spice rub is so good because it's so rich and flavorful. It is spicy, as the name states, but the heat isn't overpowering as the recipe is written.
What makes this rub so amazing is the variety of flavors that blend together; there's no way around having a long list of ingredients. If you leave something out, you will miss it in the finished product, all except for the cayenne which is what makes this rub spicy. If you are feeding children or just don't like much spice, you can leave it out or use much less than what is called for in the recipe.
