1 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of salt

2 tbsp of paprika

2 tbsp of cayenne pepper

1 tbsp of ground cumin

1 tbsp of ground celery seed

1/8 tsp of garlic powder

 

In a medium bowl thoroughly mix together the sugar and the salt.  Then add in the paprika, cayenne pepper, ground cumin, ground celery seed, and garlic powder.  Mix together thoroughly.  Apply this mixture to meats generously.  Let the meat sit for 15 minutes after application and before cooking (grilling or etc.)  It is easiest to apply to meats through a shaker bottle.  Store extra mix in a tightly sealed jar.
