Memphis rub recipe

To honour USA’s Serena Williams efforts on the court, we whip up a traditional American BBQ.

A good rub is almost as important as the meat. This Memphis version is great on any smoked meat, but especially tasty on ribs.

Ingredients

½ cup paprika

¼ cup garlic powder

¼ cup chilli powder

3 tablespoons salt

3 tablespoons black pepper

2 tablespoons onion powder

2 tablespoons celery seeds

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon dried thyme

3 teaspoons cumin

2 teaspoons dry mustard

2 teaspoons ground coriander

2 teaspoons ground allspice

Method
Combine all ingredients and mix well. This recipe should yield about two cups and can be stored in an airtight container.
