This Dry Rub Recipe will knock your socks off! It is a sweet and spicy rub that will really make your meat stand out on the plate! I have been trying out a lot of different seasonings for chicken lately and found this recipe in our family cookbook. I changed it a little bit to make it more kid friendly and it was a hit!
How to Store Dry Rub Recipe
If you like this seasoning mix it is easier to make up a double or triple batch and keep it on hand. I find it too time consuming to make up a seasoning mix every time I want to season some meat!
You will want to store it in an airtight container in a cool, dark location. I keep mine in my pantry. It is dark in there as long as the doors are closed! Don't be tempted to keep it on the back of the stove..it is too hot and there is too much moisture there. That is not a good location for spices!

Thanks….will do, I love your party!
Hi, this sounds very much like the one I use. For a deeper southwest flavor without adding heat, I add 1 tsp of cumin, and 1/2-1 tsp of smokey paprika according to taste. We use almost the same proportions as this and use it on everything.
I will have to try adding in the cumin and paprika! Thanks for the tip!!
