Fire-eater rub and seasoning is by far my favorite kicked-up rub and all-purpose seasoning. It has the wonderful flavor of celery seed. I am a little heavy-handed with the celery seed. Don’t be afraid to cut back on it a bit if you’re not quite the celery seed enthusiast that I am. And it has a fantastic bit of heat. A good amount of heat actually. Hence the name.
Fire-Eater rub and seasoning is a must-have for your pantry. I always have a big batch on hand. I use it to make my habanero wings, among many others. Because this seasoning does not contain any sugar I can use it on wings before I cook them, too. Things like an air fryer or grill will burn rubs that contain sugar.I like to make my spice, rub and seasoning mixes in big batches and keep them in large bottles with easy-to-pour shaker lids.
I admit, sometimes I need a little something to help cool off my spicy wings. That usually means Ranch dressing. Maybe blue cheese. I use these little sauce dipping cups. They’re the perfect size for dipping things like wings, nuggets, tenders, veggies, you name it. And they’re crazy easy to clean up too!
