Marlowe's Black Magic Seasoning

This recipe is from the famous Marlowe's Restaurant in Memphis (on Elvis Presley Boulevard of course). I have cut the size down to home friendly. If you watch much Food Network, you have seen them. It is the mandatory stop in Memphis for ribs.

The recipes were given to Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives by the restaurant. But the original rub recipe (apparently already cut down) produced 11 1/2 cups of rub plus you need to put together "Marlowe's Black Magic" and that recipe is 12 more cups of spices.

Not really "Cooking For Two" friendly nor home cooking friendly in general. So I cut them down. For the rub, I used 2 tablespoons for every cup of ingredient. A 1:8 reduction making about 1 1/2 cup of rub. The "Black Magic" of which I only needed 1 tablespoon I cut down by 1 teaspoon for each cup. a 1:48 reduction making about 4 tablespoons.

Black Magic seasoning is also used by its self on chicken or fish before grilling or pan-frying.

You will find the Marlowe's of Memphis BBQ Dry Rub recipe HERE .

Note: this post is a "break out" from the rub post above. It was needed for something call rich snippets. You don't really want to know...
