Sure you can purchase premixed bbq seasoning but where’s the fun in that? If you need a reason to make your own rubs and seasonings, start with the list of ingredients in premixed spices in your grocery store. Chances are they’re laden with sugar, anti-caking agents (silicon dioxide.. YUM!), and MSG (monosodium-glutamate). I don’t want these things hanging around in my pantry and I don’t want to serve it to my family either. I’ve put together 4 seasonings that are essential for any grill master’s pantry. Each bbq rub recipe serves 10.
