Ingredients for the Ultimate Smoked Turkey Rub
To achieve the most well-rounded and palate-pleasing turkey rub, we combine 7 classic BBQ seasonings with 4 tantalizing herbs.
Gather the following ingredients:
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
- 2 tablespoons kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon crushed rosemary
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, using a fork to break up any lumps. The seasoning is now ready to use. If you’re an enthusiastic Thanksgiving planner like me, feel free to prepare this seasoning ahead of time, relieving some of the holiday stress.
To store the turkey seasoning, choose an airtight glass container. Personally, I prefer using glass spice containers for all my homemade seasonings and rubs. This allows them to blend with my other spices, and it helps me keep track of my vast repertoire of homemade seasonings.
Should you have any turkey seasoning remaining, store it in an airtight glass container for up to 1 month, maintaining its freshness and flavors.
