Annual Holiday Spice Rub

It’s that time of year again where I make a big batch of my spice rub. I tend to make this rub about twice a year and use it on pretty much about anything. As I cannot truly yield all of the ingredients, I did want to share the idea to all of you this holiday season. I have created this rub and given jars out as gifts for the last several years, and since it gets great reviews, I have extended the offering to a few new folks this year. With some shameless branding for my website, I decided that it would be a good idea to share a few dishes that it goes really well with, including a great steakhouse potato salad I am preparing this weekend.

Spice Rub Recipe

Some of the ingredients include:

  • Brown Sugar
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Cannot list any more, but for those that receive it as a gift, feel free to comment and let me know what you think is in it. 🙂

The rub goes great with literally most anything you want to put on the grill. My kids love it rubbed on shrimp. I tend to love rubbing it all over a pork shoulder before smoking it. My wife loves it sprinkled on chicken and sauteed vegetables. You could even use it on a smoked brisket. My cousin just rubbed the Thanksgiving turkey with it, and it was really amazing. So I have created a rub that is versatile and can be used on whatever you so desire. I hope you enjoy the gift, and use it throughout the year. Feel free to store in your spice cupboard, and remember me and the site when you bring out the rub! Happy Holidays everyone.

P.S. Stay tuned to the website as I will be selling this product very soon.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
