Why is it always so hard to find a good Father’s Day present? For whatever reason, dads are never easy to shop for. That’s why we love this DIY idea from Leslie Marshall at Camp Makery. Marshall was inspired by our Galvanized Metal Large Cook’s Caddy to create custom BBQ rubs and sauces for Father’s Day this year. Read on to get the recipes and labels so you can make your own DIY BBQ Lover’s Kit for your dad.

Directions:

For the BBQ Rub:
Stir all ingredients together, store in airtight container until ready to use. Sprinkle on choice of meat before grilling or smoking.

TIP: This recipe makes a large amount of BBQ rub, so if your container is small or you’re prepping just a little bit of food, you can always cut the recipe in half.

For the BBQ Sauce:
Mix all ingredients well in a large pot. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 20-30 minutes. Pour into containers and keep refrigerated.

TIP: If you plan on giving two bottles of the sauce, add a little extra cayenne pepper and Tabasco to half of the sauce for a little heat. That way you’ll have one bottle of hot sauce and one bottle of mild sauce.
