This Guajillo Rub was created by Craig Mombert, executive chef at Davidson College, in North Carolina, when his department started making beef barbacoa. Omar Rodriguez, one of Mombert's chefs,experimented with the rub to replicate the flavors his family has enjoyed. Rodriguez wanted it authentic, using only guajillo and ancho chilies and Mexican oregano.
