    Kind of hard to answer. I would say experiment with a variety and develop what you like. 50 people could have 50 different “best” rubs for chicken. Amazingribs.com has some nice rubs and seasoning for different things. Experiment with store bought and develop your own. Chicken is very versatile so have at it.

    If you like sage, try this on chicken. It’s cheap, readily available, and down right good on grilled chicken. 

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    I use this for chicken/turkey, steak and pork. 

    Coffee Rub (turkey, chicken, beef & pork)
    Equal part: Instant Expresso Ground coffee..
    Equal part: Brown Sugar..
    ½ part: Black Pepper..
    ½ part: Kosher Salt..
    ½ part: Garlic Powder..
    ¾ part: Ancho Chili Powder..
    NOTE: I just start with a small jar of the Instant Expresso Ground coffee and use the jar for all measurements. 
    Don't worry on exact, just close on measurement. I used to use turbinado sugar but we like with brown better. This is pulled from MollyShark, Hungry Man, & Richard In Fl then tweaked. I find the ancho chili powder is far less expensive in the bulk spice area than the bottled area ( have used both light or dark version). I make it starting with a half cup Instant Expresso Ground coffee and work from there as it seems to store well if sealed.

    I enjoyed the video.  It's a simple approach and simple is best.  Thanks for posting it.

    SPOG is hard to beat, then add some herbs to that along with some lemon zest.  Wowzers!

    It seems to me that, so far, no one has answered the OP's question. He's not looking for rub recommendations or even recipes. He's looking for "rub theory". What herb or spice goes with another, how much of each ingredient should be used, what's good with chicken, beef, etc. At least that's the way I read it.

    I don't have an answer. I rarely buy a commercial rub and if I want something new, I Google "chicken rub" or "pork rub" and find a recipe. But I don't know the why of it.

    I Googled a few things like dry rub basics, spice rub theory, spice rubs for meat, etc. There's a lot out there. Here's one...

    @partaf, if you find a good one, let us know! :)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Lately I've really gotten to like McCormick's Perfect Pinch Caribbean Jerk seasoning.  Works great on fish & pork too~~

    Franklin explained some of it in the video above. Base, sugar content, salt content, color, etc.
