  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sweet paprika (or hot paprika)
  • 3 tablespoons crushed black peppercorns
  • 3 tablespoons coarse salt
  • 1 tablespoon hickory-flavored salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons celery seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Store in an airtight container away from heat and light. Will keep well for 6 months.

This is my base.  I also include extras like powdered sea salt, dried mustard, cumin, powdered white pepper, and cinnamon.  All these extra spices were done ‘to-taste’.  But watch out, doing it this route makes for a VERY salty mix and should be used sparingly!!!

Great on steaks, ribs, burgers, brats, chicken, fish, dove, quail, deer, bear, eggs, potato salad, and whatever else you can think of!!!
