Add bold barbecue flavor to any dish using this quick and easy BBQ seasoning recipe. Simply whisk together 7 ingredients and you're done!



  • 1 tablespoon maple sugar (or sub coconut sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients together in a small bowl and whisk well, making sure there are no clumps. That's it!


I'll typically double or triple the recipe to have extra on hand for future uses. Store the mix in an airtight container in a dry place at room temperature for up to 6 months.
