DIY BBQ Spice Rub Party Favor

It's always nice to show guests how much you appreciate their attendance at your party with a lovely party favor. It's even better when it's something they can actually get use out of, like this DIY BBQ Spice Rub. 


You can pre-make the rub for everyone and gift it to them in adorable little mason jars, or set up a DIY spice bar for everyone to make their own take-home rub!

If you go the spice bar route, make sure you set out little bowls with the different ingredients, a spoon to scoop them and that they are labeled correctly. Some spices to include are brown sugar, paprika, black pepper, salt, chili powder and garlic powder. Guests can mix and match their favorite spices to make the perfect BBQ rub for them. 

 

 

Otherwise, you can just jar up my recipe below for a tasty spice rub everyone will love. Print out creative little gift tags to tie on to each jar for the ultimate party favor!
