This is from The Freezer Cooking Manual from 30 Day Gourmet: A Month of Meals Made Easy . I had this at a friend's birthday party. He marinaded chicken breasts overnight in a plastic food bag and then used his George Foreman grill to them the next day.
I just came up with this recipe in a pinch when I had some chicken legs and wanted something different on the grilled chicken. You can vary the amounts of each spice to your taste. The original is nice and spicy. Not extremely spicy, but for people who don't like spice go light on the cayenne.
Gives a rich full American barbecue flavor. Rub it on whole or chicken pieces, pork, beef or fish. Low cost to make and stores well without refrigeration. We sometimes sprinkle on salads for a sparkling flavor.
Fashioned after Charlie Vergos' famous ribs—grilled over charcoal, mopped with vinegar sauce, and coated with a dry rub just before serving. Nearly impossible to duplicate these famous ribs at home because Vergos cooks them in a one-of-a kind pit and the rub recipe is a closely guarded secret. Here is Mr. Raichlen’s take on my favorite ribs.
This yummy spice rub is perfect for pork ribs or chicken. For pork ribs liberally season and let sit overnight in fridge then cook at 275 for 3 hours. Include a pan of apple juice in along with them to keep moist.
Lot's of flavor. Used this first on chicken and decided it would do well on just about any type of meat. Tweeked this just a bit, as the original recipe called for both the pepper AND the cayenne pepper - Yowza!
Traditional in Jamaican kitchens, jerk seasoning packs a hot punch that is mellowed by the sweetness of sugar and perfume of spices such as cinnamon and allspice.

Born in the bayous of Louisiana and immortalized by the pan-blackened fish of legend Paul Prudhomme, this rub will lend a Cajun accent to anything on which you sprinkle it, especially chicken, steak and seafood. Courtesy of Steven Raichlen's 'How To Grill Barbecue Bible'.
This is just a simple rub but it produces TONS of flavor! give it a try on beef, pork, chicken or fish, at your next BBQ, you will really like it! If you don't use all of it, store it tightly covered in the refrigerator, it will keep forever. For even more intense flavor marinate the meat overnight in the fridge in the rub!
