DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to mix.
  • (Actually, your hands work better for mixing than a spoon or whisk does. Use your fingers to break up any lumps of brown sugar.) Store the rub in an airtight jar away from heat or light; it will keep for at least 6 months.
  • Use 2 to 3 teaspoons per pound of meat.
  • A 4-pound chicken will take 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons.
  • To make a spicier rub, substitute hot paprika for some or all of the sweet paprika.
