Great BBQ Rub recipe

Discussion in 'Sauces, Rubs & Marinades' started by smokin chris, Apr 26, 2012.

  1. I started by using this on beer can chickens and then started using it on pork roasts as well. It is really good and stores well on a mason jar in the spice cabinet.

    Basic Barbecue Rub:
    1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup sweet paprika
    3 tablespoons ground black pepper
    3 tablespoons kosher or sea salt
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    2 teaspoons onion powder
    2 teaspoons celery seeds
    1 teaspoon cayenne powder

    If you like your rub spicy, just add more cayenne.

    Hope you like it as much as my family does!

    Thanks for sharing Chris.  I've never thought about using celery seed in my rubs-gonna have to give it a try.

    Same here, celery seed is a new one for me in rubs.  Have it on my list for the grocery.

    Use celery seed a lot in my rubs.  A little goes a long way.  Also celery salt is good, but you need to adjust your salt in the rub to make up for the additional salt.  Good though!
