Dry Rub for Chicken

Mix together these simple ingredients to shake or rub onto chicken or shrimp before grilling or smoking, and enjoy the yummy results!


1/4 C. paprika
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. kosher salt
2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp. cayenne
1 tsp. dry mustard (hot mustard if you have it)
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder

Optional: 1-2 tsp. ground cumin

Instructions: Combine in a bowl or shake together in a jar. Apply liberally to chicken pieces or whole chicken.  (If you slice into the thicker parts of the chicken, it will take more flavour AND cook faster!)
