This is for those of you who need or want a great basic all-around barbeque seasoning (or "rub"). This is also a great base recipe for creating your own signature seasoning.
It's key to remember that any seasoning is only as good as its ingredients. Quality fresh ingredients are what separates a great rub from the pack. Buy the best you can find and you will be amazed at the difference. For outstanding spices I strongly recommend World Spice Merchants.
Preheat your oven to 170°.
Pour the sea salt and dark brown sugar on a large sheet pan, mix well, and spread the mixture evenly over the entire pan.
Bake the salt/sugar mixture 60 minutes, or until the sugar is very dry.
Notes: Drying the sugar prevents clumping and ensures an even distribution in the final product. Drying it with the salt helps prevent the sugar from becoming a solid sheet. It's happened to me, and it's bad. That's how I developed this method.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
When the sugar is dry, remove the pan from the oven and let cool. Once cool, grind the mixture well in the pan by rolling it with a rolling pin. Do this several times in alternating directions.
Sift the salt/sugar mixture into the mixing bowl. I use a fine mesh strainer and a pestle to break it up further. Toss out any rock-like clumps.
Mix all the ingredients very well (I use a large whisk) and store in an airtight container
