This is a good recipe except for the MSG. I know too many people including myself that this would set off an allergic reaction. I would increase the kosher salt a little and eliminate the need for the MSG.

I REALLY liked this rub--it is quick for when you don't quited know what to do with your chicken but are short on time. I used it on a package of drumsticks and scaled the recipe back to 8 servings. I didn't have the lemon pepper so I used a regular pepper blend and used reg. herbs instead of ground herbs. But the taste was really nice. I liked the sweetness that the sugar gave it. It is a KEEPER for me.

I used a mixture of light brown sugar and granulated white sugar and I omitted the MSG (I'm sensitive to MSG, it gives me migraines). What I did was throw all the rub ingredients into a medium sized Tupperware container, slapped a lid on it, and handed it to my youngest boy to shake until the ingredients were well combined. I rubbed this on both chicken legs and pork ribs. EXCELLENT rub and it honestly tasted good on both meats. We grilled this over a charcoal grill which only made it better. We all were "mmmmmming" over this meat.
