Great to make into a marinade; scoop out desired amount of rub and whisk with olive oil. Marinate chicken for 1 hour in the fridge and remove from fridge 15 minutes before cooking. This process allows for even cooking.

I used this on fish and it was delicious! The only thing I didn't add was the onion powder because I had none yet it didn't do anything to the flavor. A keeper! Read More

This flavorful rub went well on a rotisserie chicken. The lemon zest is a welcomed addition to the other spices. Read More

I only made about 1/3 of this recipe mixed with olive oil and rubbed on my fresh chickens - then smoked them for 4 hours. YUM! Everyone raved about the meat! This is my 2nd time using and I will continue. Read More

I made this rub exactly to the recipe for some chickens we put on the smoker. Best rub ever for chicken. Kids loved it and it smelled amazing while smoking. Will use it again and again. Only note is that it makes enough rub for about 5-6 chickens. Read More
