How to Make Dry Rub


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. If you are making large batch to use at a later date, its best to mix in a food processor, it avoids clumping. If not, a wire whisk will do just fine!
  3. Rub on your meat of choice, cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 8 - 24 hrs before cooking.
