Summer is in full swing here in New Zealand, and that means one thing: barbecue season! As someone who loves grilling, smoking, and even baking with a touch of smoky flavour, I always have a jar of my trusted barbecue dry rub on hand. This easy-to-make blend is my secret weapon for adding incredible flavour to all kinds of meats, from chicken and ribs to brisket and even fish.

What I love most about this dry rub is its versatility. It’s got the perfect balance of sweet, smoky, and savory notes, thanks to ingredients like brown sugar, paprika, smoked paprika, black pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and a touch of cayenne pepper for a bit of heat. The best part? It literally takes about 3 minutes to throw together!

Here’s why I think you should have this dry rub in your pantry:

1. Simple and Flavourful: This dry rub uses readily available spices and comes together in a flash. No need for fancy ingredients or complicated procedures!

2. Versatile: Use it on chicken, ribs, brisket, fish, pork, and even vegetables. It adds a delicious depth of flavour to anything you grill, smoke, or bake.

3. Customizable: Feel free to adjust the spices to your taste. Want it spicier? Add more cayenne pepper. Prefer a sweeter rub? Increase the brown sugar.

4. Make-Ahead and Gift-Worthy: This recipe makes a big batch that can be stored for months in an airtight container. You can even share the love by gifting your homemade rub to fellow foodie friends and family!

So next time you’re planning a barbecue, ditch the store-bought rubs and give this easy recipe a try. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
