Fire-Eater Rub and Seasoning

Fire-eater rub and seasoning 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.

I’ve used this rub/seasoning on everything from wings to chicken breasts to corn, to soup, to a kickin’ sauce for burgers, and even prime rib.
