"This recipe is a tribute to my Uncle who is by far one the best pit masters I have ever known. Feel free to put this on chicken, pork, or just about anything else you can think of. To cover a typical 5-pound chicken, I normally measured the spices in tablespoons. However, feel free to mix a larger batch to keep some finished product on hand. One thing's for sure, you will be the hit of the party!"

Excellent combo - this makes a lot more than you need for one chicken but that is cool. It is good in soups and stews too - meat of any kind.

I tried this rub the first time last year and it has been my go to meat seasoning since. I absolutely love it! Just a note though is watch on the grill because the sugar likes to burn.

I made this last night and it was super awesome. I love making beer can chicken. It's so easy, and this rub was a great compliment.

Fantastic! Good as a rub or just a seasoning!

This was excellent, very versatile. I used it on my pork chops but I think any piece of meat would be a great accompaniment to this spice. I quartered the recipe because I didn't need a large b...
