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!

What a surprise! When I found this recipe, I wasn't sure what to think, but what the heck. I had all the ingredients handy, so why not? It was really, really good! I used the whole batch on one, big, Amish chicken. I rubbed the outside generously and sprinkled a bunch more into the cavity. In addition (thanks to watching cooking shows on TV), I took 2 TBS of Olive Oil and squeezed a lemon into the oil and drizzled that over the top to get the skin crispy, brown and spicy). As a side note, don't throw the juiced lemons out, toss them into the cavity to bake some of that lemony flavor into the chicken. It was fabulous! When it was all over, I took the drippings and brought it to a boil on the stovetop adding in 2 TBS of Wondra Sauce & Gravy Flour to make a sweet, spicy gravy that was great over our stuffing and for dipping the chicken too. Served with Green Beans with Almonds and Carmelized Shallots, this was a 5 star dinner!!! Thanks to Ed for inventing such a nifty rub!

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.

This is wonderful! My first experience making Beer Can Chicken I tried this rub and the family loved it. I sprinkle some inside the bird as well as rubbing it generously on the outside and the results are fantastic. It's also a great rub for a roasted pork tenderloin!
