1) The dry rub is as important to a good BBQ as the sauce. When creating a dry rub you want seasonings that will add to the complexity of the flavour without being overpowering. Marlowe's BBQ sauce is sweet with subtle fruit undertones; this dry rub is spicy with a late burn. The 2 together combine with the smoke flavor of the meat to create 1 cohesive unit.

2) Blend all the dry rub ingredients together well, cover and store.

For the black magic:
1) Black magic seasoning is an essential part of Southern cuisine and my kitchen is never without it. This seasoning adds extra kick as a component of Marlowe's BBQ dry rub, but it is also fabulous by itself.

2) Blend all the black magic ingredients together well, cover and store.

3) Try spicing up your chicken or fish by adding a liberal amount of this seasoning before griddling or pan-frying.
