I’m no newbie when it comes to making spice mixtures from scratch. I like to have premade mixes on hand when I need to season something quickly and don’t feel like searching through the hundreds (ok, maybe not that many) spices I have in my cupboard.
This BBQ spice seasoning is a favorite of mine. It only has 7 ingredients and can be made ahead for times when you want a quick dry rub for meats, seasoning for vegetables, or even bbq flavored crispy chickpeas.
What is in BBQ Spice Seasoning?
I’ve tried many homemade spice mixtures, some with a little ingredients and some with a whole lot. I found that this mix was simple and delicious. I use the following:
The smoked paprika is a must in my opinion for that nice smoky flavor.
Celery salt is a common ingredient I use in marinades. I also use it for this sweet and sour dressing in this salad.
Using BBQ Seasoning as a Rub for Meat?
I use dry rubs a ton when seasoning meat quickly for a weeknight. I like to coat my meats heavily with it, making sure it’s fully covered. Here’s a great list of tips for applying a dry rub to your meats.
How long will a dry rub store?
There are so many factors that go into how long spices will last. This recipe makes a batch that will be good for about 2 recipe uses. I use about 2-3 Tbps each time. So for me, it doesn’t tend to get stored for longer than 2 months.
If you want to modify the recipe or double it, triple it, etc, change the serving size in my recipe card below and it will automatically adjust the amount of ingredients needed 🙂
I hope you enjoy this rub as much as we do.
