FAQ Subject: Spice Rubs and Sauces

Hey Smoky,

My wife tends to have a hard time with spice rubs containing paprika and/or chili powder. Some peppers also bother her digestion. Can you reccomend any rubs or sauces that don't use these ingredients? We used to find a spice mix that went by the name of "Serendipity" but it seems to have disapeared in our area. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Keep up the good work! We truly enjoy your column and the barbecuen website.


Hi Clint,

Thanks for the kind words.

Paprika and other chilies are members of the same capsicum family. So if she is bothered by one she would normally react to the other.

Paprika actually is used more for color than flavor, so you don't really need it. As far as chili powder, I don't recommend it for anything but chili.

Click into the Recipe section and check out the Standing Rib Roast seasoning for a starting place. If you had been following the "Building Your Own Seasonings" articles in the "Smoke and Fire Enquirer" you would already be building your own.

Have fun,

The Barbecue Store
