A rub is the foundation of anything barbecue,it unleashes richness and depth of flavour that is unmatched.

There are different rubs out there,this is my go to rub whenever I want to throw anything on a barbecue,I usually make it in bulk,its so versatile and you will be coming across it in many of my recipes.

This rub is a perfect balance between sweet,spicy&saltines.It goes perfectly with pork,chicken and beef.This is so easy and cheap to prepare using available pantry staples and can last you well over 3 months stored on your kitchen shelf.


1 cup paprika(smoked paprika if in hand)

1 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons salt

2 tablespoons garlic powder

2 tablespoons cumin

2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoons chilli powder

1 tablespoon onion powder(granulated onions also suffice)

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

(Italian seasoning is optional,however you will be missing out on a whole new layer of flavour)
