If your family is not that fond of spicy or hot dry rubs, this is a nice simple rub that you will enjoy. Kids are especially fond of this because it's sweet, of course. But, adults will like it too since it has onion and garlic.
If your kids dislike onions, it's usually because of the texture. Using onion powder is a great way to avoid the "yuck" factor and still be able to have the flavor you like.
