    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This makes about 3/4 cup of the most wonderful spice blend, I have used it many times in the past --- the amounts listed is enough to coat one large roasting chicken, 1 small turkey or 2-3 small whole fryer chickens, or 12-14 pieces of chicken, if you like lots of heat then increase the cayenne, you will love this! :)

      Let me start by saying that Thanksgiving is my least favorite holiday of the year. It means spending hours in the kitchen and being too tired to move by time dinner is served. Not to mention the fact that I dislike turkey... I can almost stand the dark meat but forget about the dry, tasteless white meat. And frankly, the dark meat isn't much better. Enter Kittencals dry rub. You've made me a believer! For the first time in forever, I actually LIKED the turkey and even had SECONDS! Who knew? Turkey is actually GOOD! My entire family raved and said this was the best turkey I've ever made... and believe me, I've made a few... roasted, deep fried, injected, basted, brined, you name it! I doubled the recipe as I had a 23 pounder but only used about 2/3 of the rub. The turkey was very nicely crusted. The gravy was different... not your typical sage-laden sauce. But it was good and the kids loved it. FYI... this is the only way I will ever make turkey again. Thanks!!

      Very good. I used it on a chicken that I cooked on my Showtime Rotisserie. I will use this recipe again.
