Brown spice is one of four spices used on stew to make spicy stew. The Freeing Evil Dave subquest of Recipe for Disaster must be completed to obtain these in Evil Dave's Basement of Doom in Edgeville. Sending your cat to catch Hell-Rats yields between 1 to 4 doses of any of the spice colours and the Hell-Rat Behemoth in the southern room always drop 4 doses of the spice they guard. Spices of the same colour can be used on each other to combine up to 4 doses to save space. Once all doses are used it becomes an empty spice shaker.

Spicy stews containing brown spice temporarily boost or drain the stats of Farming, Fishing, Herblore, Mining, and Woodcutting. A single dose causes those stats to increase or decrease by a maximum of +1 or -1, while two doses affect those stats by -3 or +3, up to a maximum of -5 or +5 with three doses. Brown spice is useful because the skills that can be boosted do not have other methods of boosting them to the same visible levels with the exception of Fishing's Admiral pie.

The locations of the coloured spices the Hell-Rat Behemoths guard.
