The Best BBQ Rubs for Smoked Egg Salad

Now, since you went to all the trouble of smoking your eggs on a grill or smoker to make the smoked egg salad, why not finish it with a great BBQ rub instead of just paprika?

Two of our favorites are Blues Hog BBQ Rub and Three Little Pigs Kansas City Championship BBQ Seasoning.

Blues Hog is a little more sweet than salty and looks just like paprika but will give your smoked egg salad an extra hit of color and smokey BBQ goodness.

Three Little Pigs is a little more golden in color and has more savory spices of salt, garlic, and onion, so a little goes a long way, especially if you already added a lot of salt to your smoked egg salad..

Our recommendation would be to go easy on the amount of salt in your egg salad so you can add extra BBQ rub at the end.

 

Best Ways to Serve Smoked Egg Salad
