Bold flavours

This rub has a nice proportion of spices. Just enough heat, but if you really want it super spicy add more red pepper. I replaced onion salt with powder and omitted celery salt

Great flavor

I leave out the red pepper because my kids don't like heat in their foods. I buy the smoked paprika in bulk and make a large container of this and store it with my spices. I use it on chicken, rib, roasts, etc.
