Ingredients:  
2 lbs of GOOD steak - I prefer ribeye

1.5 to 2 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tsp dried ancho chile pepper (or cayenne)
1 tsp pepper
2 to 3 tsp kosher salt
1 to 2 tsp dried sweet basil

Other additions:
Cumin, freshly ground coriander, onion powder...make sure the flavors belong together.

Directions:
We eat a lot of steak - I usually buy a bunch of it on sale and sometimes it will be the only thing we eat for dinner. You really do need a good grilling steak for this. I have not tried this with deer, elk, moose, bear, caribou, or opossum; however, I imagine it will work just fine.

The real key to the recipe is the smoked paprika - I use smoked paprika for almost all my rubs (chicken, ribs, even prime rib). We used to get it at this place called "The Spanish Table" behind Pike's Public Market in Seattle. We bought it by the pound - about $15. If you do buy a bunch (or even a little) it keeps for a long time in the refrigerator.

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.
Rub on steak using a spoon or your fingers.
Put steak on grill.
DON'T OVERCOOK BECAUSE IT WILL TASTE TERRIBLE (not just this rub...)

A couple of things about this rub - there is a lot of it, usually. We like lots of powerful flavors; hence the reason why there are a ton of spices and very little (relatively speaking) salt. If you don't like lots of spices, then just give up and use steak sauce. Wuss.
