BBQ Flavored Popcorn

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1 stick butter, melted
2 tablespoons your choice Fat Boy BBQ Rub
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to bottom of a large pot. Cook over medium heat. When ready add popcorn and cover with a tight fitted lid. Shake the pan while the corn pops to keep it from burning.

Add the popcorn to a large bowl and drizzle with butter. Sprinkle with the Fat Boy BBQ Rub of our choice (we recommend Cowgirl if you want a little heat or try Sweet or Pecan if you want a little sweet), and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and toss thoroughly.
