  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Stir together the sugar, salt, monosodium glutamate, oregano, basil, lemon pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, chili powder, mustard, white pepper, and cayenne pepper in a bowl until evenly combined. Store in an airtight container.
  2. To use, apply generously (about 1 tablespoon per serving), and rub into chicken or pork. Allow to stand for 30 minutes prior to cooking.


  • Cook's Note
  • If you don’t have the ground oregano or basil spice ingredients try blending or food processing it to grind or just triple the measurement and use the flake instead of ground. If you think it's too peppery, use dried lemon peel instead of the lemon pepper.

Awesome dry rub; I left out the MSG though. Ive used this quite a bit already over the past 2 months. Always comes out great when I've used the grill. Highly recommend it!!!!

Good on chicken - I didn't add the last 3 ingredients, or the MSG. Only let it sit with the rub on it for about 10 mins also, rather than 30 mins like is recommended. Still came out tasty - easy...

Not bad

Like everyone else, no MSG. Instead of the salt, I used garlic salt instead of garlic powder. Rubbed on pic o the chix and let sit for maybe 20 min. Grill was being serviced so cooked on conv...
