BBQ Spice Mix

BBQ Spice Mix

This recipe was inspired by my friend Jen’s Gone Paleo’s post about jerky…when I saw she was using Penzey’s BBQ 3000 spice mix, I figured I’d try my hand at my own blend! I admit to going on the Penzey’s site and perusing their ingredients list. Then, I mixed the spices together in a ratio that made sense (i.e. keep cloves on the slim side because they are very strong but go for it on the smoked paprika, as it’s a great base flavor).

We are whitewater rafting in Idaho this coming week and need to bring some paleo-friendly snacks. Thankfully, a double batch of homemade jerky (with the new BBQ seasoning), combined with macadamia nuts and dried berries, then vacuum-sealed thanks to my FoodSavr is going to make for some safe snacking.
