    In the rub, is the cumin and/or coriander ground into powder form? or whole? BTW, your rub is almost identical to mine, I'll have to add the coriander .... I also add a bit of ground clove or nutmeg or cinnamon to my rub. Also, freshly toasted, then ground, cumin has so much more flavor than ground cumin from the grocer. Mangia, Mangia Mijo
