A salt free smoky barbecue chicken rub that has a slight spiciness to it. This is the rub I will usually use when I am grilling, or smoking chicken.
In recipes where I want to add salt to the rub, I will add four parts of this rub to one part kosher salt. I do this in recipes where I do not brine the chicken. If I have brined the chicken, then I will use this rub directly without adding any salt.
Succulent smoky balls of chicken meat cooked in a butter bath. They are mouthfuls of meat, with no worries about chewing the meat away from the bone. They even have their own handle! What is not to love?
