First you will need to make a batch of the BBQ rub recipe. Just follow the simple instructions below to whip up this recipe.
BBQ Rub Recipe
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup paprika
- 1 tbsp ground black pepper
- 1 tbsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tbsp ground mustard
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Add to jars for storage or store in the freezer. Rub on all types of meats before grilling for added flavor.
We added the BBQ rub to mason jars for a great gift idea for Dad. The recipe above made three of these mini mason jars. It would probably also do well in one pint jar. Love those labels? We do too! You can purchase the OL350 labels in kraft from Online Labels then click here to print the BBQ rub graphics onto them. Then just peel and stick the labels onto the jars. Your Father’s Day gift in a jar is complete and ready for gift giving!
You can make this same BBQ rub for weddings, hostess gifts, or even yourself. Really it is great for any summer occasion. Make up a large batch and keep it on hand in your pantry at all times. You will love the flavor that it gives your grilling this season. Make this Father’s Day gift in a jar with the kids as well. They will love mixing up the spices while you print the labels. A simple gift idea that Dad will actually use!
