Before you get started, take a look at these tips for making the best homemade grill seasonings!

  1. Build a foundation: Add black pepper and kosher salt to create a solid base for any spice mix.

  2. Taste test frequently: Be sure to check the flavor throughout the process to be sure you like the direction it’s going.

  3. Grind your own black pepper: Pre-ground black pepper has less potency than freshly ground peppercorns.

  4. Time herbs perfectly: Add your dried herbs at the start of the recipe and fresh herbs at the end to maximize their flavor.

  5. Add citrus: Add a ⅛ teaspoon of fresh lemon or lime juice to brighten up mild seasonings.

  6. Season chilled foods generously: Cold temperatures dull the taste of seasonings. Add slightly more of each ingredient to compensate.

  7. Add some sweetness: A pinch of cinnamon, brown sugar or nutmeg can balance a savory grill seasoning mix perfectly.

    I am so looking forward for the barbecue season! These spice blends sound fantastic! I grow my own aromatic herbs and I do plan to use them a lot on in marinades for the grill.

  2. Jeana S says

    This sounds absolutely delicious! My mouth is watering already! I won’t be doing much grilling this summer but I’ll definitely be sharing this with my family and friends.

  3. Kemi says

    I love seasoning and heavily season my food with spices. I use a bit of honey for my chicken marinade and it gives it a nice brown and crispy glaze.

  4. Talamay says

    I love a new recipe to try and anytime there is a spice blend I can make at home versus paying extra for preblended spice. There are always so over priced.

  5. Anagha says

    That’s an interesting set of seasonings. I only know few of them . I will make note of this so that I can try all of them.

  6. Alvern @ Success Unscrambled says

    Very nice, I like all of these grill seasonings as they seem to burst with flavour just reading the ingredients. It is a pity that I no longer have a huge garden with a grill. I would invite friends over every weekend just to try out each option.

    • Dalene Ekirapa says

      Oh Alevrn…too bad you’ll kinda miss all the grilling delicacies with amazing seasoning.
      But I hope you get a taste, even at a friend’s.

  7. Alexandra Cook says

    Grilling is my favorite way to cook. These are some great seasonings to try out!

  8. Alexandra Cook says

    Thes were a great list. As I started my cooking lesson, this is something that I can share with my friends and will try using these in every recipe.

  9. Monidipa Dutta says

    I love barbeques and grilling gives a wonderful flavour. I wish I would have seen this yesterday, could have used it for my birthday party.

  10. Laura Dove says

    Oh this could not have come at a better time. With BBQ season upon us we are so excited to start getting the grilled meats on the go! I will try all of these over the summer!

  11. aditi says

    This is awesome! Never considered creating my own seasonings! Am definitely going to try this summer!

  12. Tescha Chetty says
