    Dry Rub for Game Birds:

    This gives extra flavour to dove, quail, pheasant,
    wild turkey, and other fowl. Adjust ingredients to
    your own taste or to compliment what you're cooking.

    2 Tablespoons pickling spice, crushed in a mortar and
    pestle or spice mill
    1 Tablespoon coarsely-ground black pepper
    1 Tablespoon salt
    1 Tablespoon dark brown sugar
    2 teaspoons white pepper
    2 teaspoons dry mustard
    2 teaspoons powdered ginger
    1 teaspoon cayenne
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    6 to 8 juniper berries, crushed in a mortar and pestle
    or spice mill

    Stir all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
    Store the rub in a tightly closed jar. It keeps
    indefinitely but loses its' potency over time.

    Makes about 1/2 cup.

    Another recipe from Chris at the Smoke & Grill Yahoo discussion group.
