To tempt you, I’ll give you a sneak peak at the deliciousness you’ll find between its covers:
BARON’S BASIC BARBECUE SPICE
6 tablespoons paprika (I like smoked paprika)
3 tablespoons dried light brown sugar (recipe follows)
2 tablespoons dry mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons granulated garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons ground celery seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons ground thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 1/2 teaspoons ground marjoram
3/4 teaspoons cayenne
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and blend well. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for 2 to 3 months, or in the freezer for up to six months.
Makes 1 cup. Use it on any kind of meat.
Dried brown sugar
In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 pounds of light brown sugar and 1/4 cup of cornstarch, and mix with an electric mixer on low speed until fully incorporated. Turn the speed to medium to medium-high and mix for 3 to 5 minutes. Store in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry place.
