  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • ½ tablespoon coarse black pepper Alternatively, for more heat use the same ratio with cayenne pepper. But we don't recommend both.


  • Combine all ingredients together in a bowl. Transfer to an air tight serving container (like a mason jar or other dry rub container). Will keep for up to a year if sealed tight and kept in a cool place.



Storage: Store any dry rub and seasoning in an airtight container like a mason jar in a cool dark cupboard. This prevents the sun from causing any moisture evaporation. 
This seasoning will last up to 12 months in the right container.
