If you're grilling beef, out of my barbecue rubs, then this easy-to-make blend is the one to choose! A blend of tasty spices, dried herbs and sugar that can be made in minutes and will season and flavour your cut of meat beautifully. (See the bottom of the page for other BBQ rubs)
What You'll Need: (makes about 10 tablespoons)
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp dried marjoram
2 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp mustard powder
4 tsp garlic powder
4 tsp cumin seeds
4 tsp peppercorns
2 tsp ajwain seeds (optional)
2 tsp celery seeds
2-3 tsp salt
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
Store your barbecue dry rub recipe in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.
Note: As you've gone to the trouble of making your own barbecue rubs, why not take it a stage further and dry toast the coriander, cumin and ajwain seeds and peppercorns prior to grinding?
The heat draws out the flavours which will enhance your blend no end! Click here to read more about this. (Link opens in new window)
Ingredient Note: I recommend using whole spices if you can as these will add the best flavours. However, this is not always convenient and if you don't have whole just use pre-ground powders and reduce the quantities by half. So for 4 teaspoons of cumin seeds you use 2 teaspoons of pre-ground cumin. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with the other powders when making.
