Spice Rubs

Spice Rubs


  • Assorted spices
  • Spice Grinder, Coffee Grinder or Mortar and Pestle
  • Frying Pan
  • Clear Sandwich Bags
  • Old Postcards or Decorative Papers
  • Stapler


Mum and I used these recipes from the latest issue of Gourmet Magazine (I'm a new subscriber, but have quickly fallen madly in love!) to make some wonderfully fragrant meat rubs with the contents of the spice cupboard, a frying pan and my handy coffee grinder.

It was a snap to do and I loved how the house filled with the smell of toasting fennel, cumin and coriander. (It made me miss Eric something fierce though. He's the real spice lover in our little family and it was his collection we were using up!)

Spice Rubs

 We tripled the recipes for the many Dads in our life and packaged them in clear baggies...

And completed the gift by simply folding vintage postcards over the top, stapleing them closed and neatly labeling them. We gave each fellow a pretty assortment. Isn't it lovely how each one turned out a different shade?

We did save one batch for ourselves and used it to make a batch of ribs. They were just perfect! How are you spending Father's day this year?

Does dadlove to do the grilling and love to use spices. Do you use one that is his favorite then make up some small batches and put in baggies with a tag that tells you what it is and whatto put it on. This is a great gift for Fathers Day or anytime. You can even make them for anyone who likes to cook or just like a special spice mixture you use. This is a very thoughtful gift that is from the heart and so special. Great idea.

This would be a wonderful housewarming gift too!!

To get the rub recipes go to www.gourmet.com and in the recipe search box type in rubs and enter. Or from this site To get the recipes it take a few steps. 1.Click on Becky Kazana at the top of this page 2. Click on her blog site name "The fab Miss B " 3. Type in "Spice Rub Recipes" in the search window at the top left on the blog site by the word share. Press enter 4. The title of the blog will be Last Minute Father's Day Gift posted on Sunday June 21,2009. 5. Click on "these recipes" in the blog it will take you to the recipes. The first option is the easiest. Happy Cooking!!!

I can't find a link to the recipes anywhere - and I don't know what the "latest" issue of Gourmet magazine is based on when the post was first written so I can't even check out the magazine in the library. This is a very frustrating Fathers' Day project!

Agree with you Gyelle...No recipes!!

Your links are beyond frustrating and totally worthless. I can not find the recipes anywhere, I have clicked on all of the 'links'; most of them went to advertisements. Becky Kazana's link did not give an option to link to the recipes. I would really like to try making some spice rubs.

Click on the Becky Kazana link at the top of the page. It will take you to the page with the link to the father's day meat rubs recipes.

But where do I get the rub recipes? There was no link. I love trying different spices.

this would make great Christmas Gifts too !! put it in a jar and decorate it Decoupage a pig for pork, etc.... so cute love the idea !!!!!!!
