We love to grill all year round and are constantly trying out new spices, herbs and rubs. We like to try different sauces as well, but using dry rubs really brings out the flavors in the meat and that’s the way we usually roll when grilling or smoking meat. I’ve really wanted to try to make some of my own dry spice rub for a while, so today I’m going to share the rub recipe I made this weekend with you. This seasoning can be used on either chicken or pork. This evening, we used it to grill some chicken for fajitas and they turned out absolutely amazing!!! Let me show you how we made ours, and I’ll also share the recipe and ingredients below so you can save them if you like! Don’t forget to pin this recipe to your Pinterest Recipe Board so you can try it later!
We used our Kitchenaid mixer to mix our spices together, but all you really need is a large bowl and a spoon.
- ¼ Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 tbsp Kosher Salt
- 1 tbsp Chili Powder
- 1 tbsp Paprika
- 2 tbsp Garlic Powder
- 2 tbsp Onion Powder
- 1 tbsp Oregano
- 2 tsp Thyme
- 2 tsp Parsley
- 2 tsp Sage
- 1 tsp Coriander
- 1 tsp Rosemary
- Mix ingredients well and store in an airtight container. Rub into meat before grilling.
We sprinkled a fair amount on both sides of our chicken breasts for fajitas this evening.
And it turned out perfectly! If you like a little more spice, you can add a little cayenne pepper to the mix. We doubled the recipe so we have some to share with our friends. This would make a great gift along with some grilling tools if you are going to a cookout, or even around the holiday season!
Here are a few of the methods we use when grilling and smoking meats…
