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

Neely's BBQ Seasoning:

1 1/2 cups paprika

3/4 cup sugar

3 3/4 tablespoons onion powder


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
