All-Purpose Barbecue Spice Rub


This barbecue rub may be used on poultry, pork, seafood, and all varieties of meat. You can vary the heat level by using hot paprika instead of sweet.


  • 1/4 cup Smoked Rock Salt
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sweet paprika
  • 2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper


Put the salt, brown sugar, paprika, and pepper in a small bowl and stir to mix. (Your fingers actually work better for mixing the rub than a spoon or whisk does.) 

Store the rub in an airtight jar away from heat and light; it will keep for at least 1 year. 

Makes about 3/4 cup
