Magic Dust

½ cup paprika
¼ cup kosher salt, finely ground
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup powdered mustard
¼ cup chili powder
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
¼ cup garlic powder
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper

Combine all of the above – add more or less cayenne pepper to suit your preferences. I always double the recipe when I make it – it goes with every meat; fish, beef (steak, brisket, Miami ribs) and chicken as a dry marinade and cooking spice – so it goes fast. Store it in an airtight container while it lasts.
