The Best Burger Rub

Sure, grilled burgers are good, but this seasoning rub will really add a fantastic flavor to those patties. This recipe makes enough seasoning rub for a few dozen burgers, so it's a perfect amount for a large cookout. Take this rub along with you to tailgating events and camping trips. You'll be glad you did!

Course: Rubs
Cuisine: American BBQ
Servings: 1 Cup


  • 1/4 cup coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon granulated onion
  • 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons dried marjoram


  • Combine burger rub ingredients in a small bowl. Use immediately or store in an air tight container in the cupboard for up to six months after preparation.
  • Sprinkle desired amount on to patties. I use about 1/4-1/2 teaspoon per burger, depending on size. If making stuffed burgers with bacon, then season them lightly. You can try this rub mixture on steaks and in meatballs as well.
