Favorite rub for chicken?



  • Im with Kl8ton on the oak ridge. I also really like DP Tsunami Spin. These 2 are almost indentical to each other 

    I almost always use homemade salt pepper garlic now though.

    I’ve got that rub too.  I quit using it because it just seemed to salty to me.  Maybe I was using to much.   It over powered any skinless piece I put it on.   How much are you using?
    I don’t use it straight from the can due to the varying sizes of seasoning. I could see where the salt could over power that way. I normally mix it with olive oil and lemon juice. The ratio on the package is ridiculous. I cut the 1/4 cup seasoning in half or more and add more liquid to get the consistency to my liking.

    I don't think anyone has mentioned Mickey's coffee rub yet and it's one of my favs for chicken, too (especially wings).

    + 1 for Mickeys plus a vote for Ken's Witchy Red. Both recipes can be found on this site if you search. I like the Witchy better, but the ingredients are overwhelming...

    My Grandmother made a vinegar based dip, not a rub (hey we are in NC BBQ country)  It was the best I've had when I was a kid and Dad was grilling.  If you are intrested I'll dig out the exact recipe.  Man that brings back memories of me and my Dad sharpening a stick and throwing little apples I know 50 yards, seemed like 200 at the time. 
    I would like that recipe.

    I'm in favor of Myron mixons basic chicken rub.  I've tried premixes and concoctions of my own.  Perfect blend of sweet and spice and I've used it almost religiously for my chicken.  I mix up a gallon ziplock bag at a time.  Google search mixons basic chicken rub
