Dad's Down Home BBQ Popcorn

Difficulty: Easy

Recipe Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning mix
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
8 cups popped popcorn
1/4 cup clarified butter (helps prevent sogginess; may use regular melted butter)
1 teaspoon liquid smoke

Cooking Instructions:

1. Combine brown sugar, Cajun seasoning mix, garlic powder, onion powder and chili powder in a small
bowl.
2. Melt ¼ cup butter. Cool slightly, then pour off the clear melted butter layer into a small bowl. Discard the
opaque milky solids that remain behind.
3. Stir the liquid smoke into the butter.
4. Place popcorn in a large bowl, and drizzle it with butter mixture. Toss to coat the popcorn well.
5. Sprinkle sugar-seasoning mixture over popcorn and toss to distribute evenly.
6. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container.

Note: Liquid smoke can be found with the barbecue sauces/condiments section of large grocery stores.

Yields 8 cups
