Rachel’s BBQ Rub

Hey guys!  It might surprise you that one of my most popular blog posts over the years was a recipe for BBQ sauce I did when I was hard core on the low sugar thing.  It is a fun recipe and lots of people have tried it and liked it.

Rachel’s Homemade BBQ Sauce

My friend invited me to a handmade item co-op tomorrow where we swap items that we have made by hand.  Can be anything from soap to jam to cheese.  I love making jam but didn’t feel up to it this week and they didn’t want sweets (was going to do chocolate covered strawberries!).

I just couldn’t take on a bit project like making jam this week so I thought long and hard about what I could make because I don’t sew or knit or do a handicraft I could swap.  The best thing I could come up with is to make a spice rub.  I looked at some recipes and came up with something I liked. It’s a little sweet and spicy and would be great on pork, poultry and fish.

I also found these jars on amazon with blackboard stickers and I just think they are darn cute.

Rachel’s BBQ Rub

1/2 c paprika

1/2 c brown sugar

2 tbsp chili powder

2 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tbsp onion powder

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp parsley flakes

1 tbsp salt

1 tbsp black pepper

Pretty simple just mix everything together and put in jar.  The paprika and brown sugar will clump up.  If you don’t like spice than omit or only 1 tsp of cayenne pepper. If you want it sweeter add more brown sugar. It seemed like every batch I made I added a little more of one thing, a little less of another so it just depends.

It was so fun hearing people’s changes and success with the BBQ sauce recipe so I’d love to hear it on this as well.  Please share!
