This fire-eater rub is by far my favorite kicked-up rub and all-purpose seasoning. It has the wonderful flavor of celery seed (I am a little heavy-handed with the celery seed… don’t be afraid to cut back on it a bit if you’re not quite the celery seed enthusiast that I am). And it has a fantastic bit of heat. A good amount of heat actually. Hence the name.
Fire-Easter rub is a must-have for your pantry. I always have a big batch on hand. Check out my list of great recipes that use this fantastic rub.
