Custer's Old Fashioned Turkey Rub

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Chef Shadows

Source: SHADOWS. This rub combines everything you need for a delicious turkey. Remember when rubbing poultry you want to get it under the skin. Skin blocks flavor, and while you might get some tasty skin it won't help the meat any.

Top Review by Chef Maria 2

We used this for Christmas turkey and it was great.


  1. Combine all ingredients and store in an air tight container. Makes enough rub for a 20 pound turkey.
  2. I also at times add fresh grated ginger, approx 1/4 teaspoons.
