When it comes to spice mixtures, I will admit I am REALLY picky. I am not someone who has ever really gone and bought premixed spices even before I went gluten-free. I will say that I did get a few from Penzys over the years, but even then, I would notice slight changes in the flavors between batches, and sometimes they just didn't taste right to me.
After I went gluten-free, I noticed where gluten could hide, and I saw many spices had anti-caking ingredients, and they weren't being listed as gluten-free. Odd to me, since spices should just be spices, right? Well, thankfully, I figured that out quickly, so I wasn't going to be making myself sick all the time from herbs.
I mean, this southern girl loves her flavors, and spices are the way to get that. So I started experimenting with different spice blends until I came up with a few of my go-to combinations. This blend is special because it's my BBQ, and I LOVE all things BBQ!

How long does Homemade BBQ Seasoning Last?
When it comes to spices, there are a few things to consider. Spices lose their flavor over time, so I do not recommend storing spices for more than a few months.
This particular spice blend makes enough for a few recipes for me personally, so I go through it a lot, and that I will double or triple the batch, especially during BBQ season.
