Classic BBQ Rub

A Classic BBQ Rub for Beef, Poultry, Pork, Burgers, and anything else…
While I am often not a fan of complex rubs and marinades – largely because I like the meat to speak for itself – this BBQ Rub is fabulous on just about anything and doesn’t detract from the flavor of anything you might put it on.  It is especially good on burgers and long-smoked chicken and pork.  I usually make this stuff by the Tablespoon and keep it in an airtight container.

Time: 5-10 minutes
Level: Easy
Cost: N/A
Serves: N/A

Ingredient List:

8 parts paprika (either smoked or sweet depending on preference)
6 parts ground black pepper
5 parts salt
2 parts dark brown sugar
1 parts granulated garlic powder
1 parts granulated onion powder
1 parts ground cayenne pepper


Whisk all the ingredients together in a medium size bowl until well blended.  Alternatively, add to a mason jar or medium size Tupperware container and shake vigorously until blended.  Make sure to break up any clumps of brown sugar during the mixing process.  Store in an airtight container.
