Barbecue Rub for Beer Can Chicken

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Melissa Spangler

This BBQ rub is really flavorful and very simple to make. I triple this recipe and store it in an airtight container. It's also great on beef or pork.

For all the 5-star reviews this rub got, I was expecting it to be outstanding, but it was just okay. It made enough rub to cover the whole chicken, and smelled absolutely delicious while cooking, but it just didn't have enough salt in it, and I don't think the brown sugar in it complimented the chicken very well. It was definitely the best smelling chicken I've ever cooked though! :) Thanks!
