- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons Neely's BBQ Seasoning, recipe follows
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Put a large heavy bottomed pot over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil or enough to coat the bottom of the pan. Drop a few kernels of corn in the oil to test the heat. When they begin to pop, add the rest of the corn and cover with a tight fitted lid. Shake the pan while the corn pops to keep it from burning.
Add the popcorn to a large bowl and drizzle with butter. Sprinkle with the BBQ Seasoning, and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and toss thoroughly.

- 1 1/2 cups paprika
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 3/4 tablespoons onion powder
