  • 24 Parts Brown Sugar
  • 4 Parts Salt
  • 4 Parts Paprika
  • 4 Parts Garlic Salt
  • 4 Parts Garlic Powder
  • 4 Parts Black Pepper
  • 4 Parts Chile Flakes
  • 2 Parts Thyme Dried
  • 2 Parts Oregano Dried
  • 1 Part Cayenne Powder


  • Simply combine all your ingredients and mix well. 😉


  • This is a sugar based rub, so it will burn if you get it too close to flame.  For that reason I almost exclusively use it when grilling over indirect heat or baking.
