Homemade Barbecue Rub - Kansas Style

This Kansas style BBQ rub works well with beef. It also works with tofu if you're vegetarian.

You can use it as a dry rub or as a marinade.

Ingredients: (makes about ½ a cup)

4 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp coriander seeds
1-2 tbsp light brown sugar
1 tbsp dried marjoram
1 tbsp thyme
1 tbsp chilli powder (or more)
2 tsp celery seeds
1½ tsp sea salt
1 tsp peppercorns

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


In a coffee grinder, combine all ingredients and grind to a fine powder. Store in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight.

To make a quick marinade, in a small saucepan add 1 tablespoon of the above rub with one cup of tomato sauce with 2 tablespoons of honey or agave nectar. Place on a low heat and heat until the spices and honey/agave are blended in.

Simple, and so much better and tastier than bland store bought BBQ rubs.
