Homemade BBQ Rub (Video Recipe)

BBQ Rub is so simple to make that you can make it from scratch at home. Everything that I used in the recipe may already be found in your pantry!

I love how the spices blend well resulting in an enhanced flavor that can be put on everything. Individually, the ingredients taste good but together, they are amazing.

The proportion is also perfect. I like the balance of saltiness and sweetness that is perfect for any BBQ! The smokiness is there, and it complements any kind of meat, may it be pork, chicken, or beef.

This seasoning is also great on veggies and tofu!

I also like the texture that results in using a dry rub. The surface crisps up which makes it even more fun to eat! The balance of flavors and crispiness add up to a great barbecue experience!

What goes into homemade bbq rub:

  • Brown sugar – caramelizes as the meat is cooked which provides crunch
  • Onion and garlic powder – both spices add a savory flavor
  • Salt – adds a nice balance to the sweetness
  • Ground black pepper – adds a bit of heat
  • Cayenne pepper – adds spiciness, use as much as you can handle
  • Smoked paprika – you can choose if you want to add mild or hotter variants, this adds a smokiness that complements any BBQ
  • Dry mustard – adds aroma and a bit of tang
  • Dill seeds – slightly pungent and bitter
  • Cinnamon – adds a sweet-spicy flavor
  • Nutmeg – adds a sweet-nutty flavor

How to make the best bbq rub?

Simply gather and measure all the ingredients according to the recipe card at the bottom of this post. Then, mix everything in a bowl! Once ready, you can use it right away!

How do you use a bbq rub?

Simply coat the piece of meat that you will cook, whether it be rib, brisket, shoulder, chicken wings, or legs. This recipe is good for any kind of meat!

Just make sure that the surface is not overly wet. There is no hard rule as to how much you put on a piece of meat. You just want to coat generously, and any excess will simply fall off.

This is different from a marinade that has tenderizing properties. No marinating is required when using dry rubs, go ahead and cook shortly right after you put it. In barbecuing, you can use the oven, the Instant Pot, or a grill.
