Homemade BBQ Spice Rub

This spice rub is delicious — it’s from Steven Raichlen (also known as the guru behind BBQ University!)

This rub works on all types of meat as well, and it keeps for several months in a cool, dry spot!

I packaged this in small Ball jars — but The Container Store has super-cute little jars you could use if you had the time to order them (which I did not. LOL)

Fuzzy picture? Weird.

Basic Barbeque Rub

(Steven Raichlen)

Yield: 1 cup

1/4 cup coarse salt (kosher or sea)
1/4 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
1/4 cup paprika
3 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir or whisk to mix. Transfer to a jar, cover, and store away from heat and light. The rub will keep for several months.

If giving as a gift, add a tag: “Rub 1-2 tablespoons of mix over your chicken, pork, or beef, and cook as desired!)”

    I have his cookbook, it’s very inspiring.

    I altered his melon-mint relish into a dessert by leaving out the savoury ingredients and substituting angel food cake

    it was very refreshing
