BBQ Sauce is a favorite of mine. Chips, ribs, chicken. Truly, it is one thing that never gets old. You can have it sweet, honey, smoky, spicy or a blend of all of them. In this post I am going to share how you can make your own BBQ Seasoning Mix to be used on, or with, many varieties of foods.

You can buy this BBQ seasoning mix already made, if you are not into making your own. On Amazon, this McCormick BBQ seasoning mix is the closest to what this recipe is making. Just a little smoky, a little sweet and a lot of delicious BBQ flavor to add to chicken, pork, vegetables and more.
Store this seasoning mix!
You can store this delicious mix in an airtight container in the fridge or a cool dry place until needed. Make sure to label it as to not get it confused with any other seasoning blends.
I chose to store this seasoning blend in a mason jar, then placed in my seasonings and spices cabinet. It will sit right next to my Homemade Taco Seasoning. Click the link HERE or below for the recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning.
This BBQ Seasoning Mix can also be used and made into a BBQ Sauce. Stay tuned for that recipe!
What to use with this seasoning blend
For dinner, this seasoning blend is AMAZING with pork ribs. Measure out the desired amount of seasoning into a separate bowl as to not contaminate the rest of the mix.
Remove the pork ribs from the packaging and then drizzle oil over the ribs. Sprinkle the seasoning blend over the entire surface of the ribs and rub it in with clean hands.
This can then be cooked right away or marinated overnight in the fridge. Make sure to cover the ribs completely if you choose to rest them in the fridge.

2 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
2 tsp Cumin
1/4 cup Sweet Paprika
1 Tbsp Chili Powder
1 Tbsp Salt

Lately, finding garlic is hard to find. Making garlic powder happened in a moment of desperation when non was found at the grocery store. Click the link below or HERE for my full blog on how to use a dehydrator to make your own garlic powder.
Measure and add the 2 tsp Cumin to the dish.
Measure and add the 1/4 cup Sweet Paprika to the dish.
Measure and add the 1 Tbsp Chili Powder to the dish.
Measure and add the 1 Tbsp Salt to the dish.
Measure and add the 1 Tbsp Black Pepper to the dish.
Measure and add the 1 Tbsp Onion Powder to the dish.
Mix the seasonings in the dish with a fork.
Place the BBQ Seasoning Mix into a spice grinder and then process until fine and smooth.
Not only does a spice grinder help to fully blend the ingredients, but it also processes the ingredients, so they are smoother and less coarse.
This post was all about how to make BBQ Seasoning Mix from scratch to be used in many ways. Make sure to store the Seasoning Mix in an airtight container and store in a cool and dark place.
