Homemade Barbecue Seasoning Rub Recipe is so simple to make. This is a savory all-purpose seasoning blend made with spices already in your cupboard!
This simple and basic seasoning blend is my go-to for tastier pork ribs and Boston butts. As well, it kicks up the flavor of chicken or any protein, even vegetables that need seasoning. It provides a fantastic flavor to foods cooked on the grill.
However, it’s not just for grilling, you’ll want to keep this savory barbecue seasoning handy all year long. Made with seasonings that you probably have on hand like brown sugar, paprika, garlic, and more, it’s the perfect blend of spices. It’s smoky, spicey, and adds dimensions of flavor to your food.
Most noteworthy, making your own seasoning blend is economical. Store it in a glass jar in your spice cabinet or freeze it to preserve it even longer.
