3 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar

3 tablespoons dried Italian seasoning

2 tablespoons English-style dry mustard

2 tablespoons granulated garlic

2 tablespoons sweet paprika

1 tablespoon ground ginger

1 tablespoon minced dried orange peel

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Mix brown sugar, Italian seasoning, mustard, garlic, paprika, ginger, orange peel, salt, pumpkin pie spice, black pepper, and cayenne in a bowl. Pulse in a spice grinder in a few batches until finely ground. Seal in an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place for up to 2 months.

Cook’s Note

Our testers used dried orange peel, but you can use fresh grated orange zest--it will just shorten the shelf life of the rub.
