Memphis Rub

This rub is full of complex flavors. You get a little bit of heat and a little bit of sweetness. Use it as a stand alone rub or grill your meat with the rub and add some BBQ sauce for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
I really like this rub on pork, but it is also fabulous on shrimp.

You will need a jar with a tightly fitting lid. An empty large spice shaker container or Parmesan cheese container is just perfect if you have one of those.

1/4 cup paprika
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons cayenne(red) pepper
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder

Put everything into the container and screw on lid.
Shake it up.

This makes about a half cup.

To use: put some on meat and rub it in.

  1. Sounds good. Envy you having a barbecue, living in an apartment, it is not allowed. Have an indoor/outdoor but not really the same.

    1. Jo, I know what you mean. That is one negative about apartments that I remember.

  2. I like all the ingredients in it. I bet it's really flavorful!

    1. It is, Sherry. I have had it on chicken and it is good on that too. :)
