Recipe for 2 tablespoons (the equivalent of one store-bought packet)
Recipe for Big Batch (about 1/2 cup)
In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients until combined.
Use as needed (I recommend 2 tablespoons of seasoning per pound of meat.)
I use kosher salt in this recipe, which is a loser flake and not as salty as table salt.
Most store bought packets include flour, which is used as a thickening agent. If you want to include it in your mix, I recommend a 1/2 teaspoon added into the 2 tablespoons recipe.

This seasoning mix will store well in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
