Sweet and Spicy Pork Skewers

This was Rex's request for his father's day dinner and it was divine! He recently got me a grilling cookbook, so we tested it out! Won-der-ful!! Really easy and the flavors are amazing! Next time you grill, try this out!

1-1.5 lbs. pork chops cut into 1 inch chunks
1 tablespoon olive oil

BBQ rub:
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon celery salt

1/4 cup fresh or refrigerated lime juice (I grated a bit of peel in there too)
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon dried thyme
pinch of cayenne
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
limes for garnishing

1. Mix oil and dry rub ingredients together in a shallow dish. Toss pork chunks into dish and mix with spices until all the meat is coated. Preheat grill to med-high heat. Skewer your pork onto water soaked skewers.
2.Combine all your glaze ingredients together. Put your skewers on the grill and after they have been cooking for about 5 minutes start basting pork with glaze. Baste every couple of minutes to really enhance the flavor. After about 12-15 minutes check your meat for doneness and remove from grill when cooked through.
3. Serve with lime wedges, watermelon, corn, potato salad, anything bbq worthy and eat!!
