Chicken Rub- mild #2

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

*UPDATE* changed salt and name.

 

made up some rub for some skin on chicken breasts. over all a decent rub for some flavor for someone who doesn't like heat(My better half). of course I will tinker with it a little.

 

    chicken rub- mild  # 2

  • 3 tbs sea salt  fine  reduce to 1 TBS
  • 3 tbs paprkia hungarian
  • 3 tbs  raw sugar turbinado
  • 1 tsp garlic granulated
  • 1 tsp onion granulated
  • 1 tsp white pepper ground
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary ground
  • 1/2 tsp mustard ground
  • 1/2 tsp oregano ground
  • 1/2 tsp coriander ground  

 

 

 

things I learned from this smoke:

next time i will back out some salt and put the rub on over night.

 

Q to follow.

Here are a few Q-view. The breasts are butterfly split. I placed rub on both sides and under the skin. Used a little evo on the outside.
Smoked at 250ish until 160 IT. A few hours.

once again, tasting the food right out of the smoker vs later gives a different taste. I just ate a chicken sandwich. put some of my JD rib glaze on it, added shredded cheddar and nuked it. tasted great. I still will cut down the salt a tinker with it but this may just be a decent enough rub for those who are heat sensitive :)

Your recipe is slightly over 20% salt. If you cut to 5%( from 3 tablespoons to 1 teaspoon) you may like it better.

Your chicken does look really good.

dewetha, morning....  I have started using a scale to measure the salt... I have found about 8 grams per pound of meat is about right for a rub.... At least you will have a starting point that can be adjusted to suit your taste.... all other spices added and all the rub is used per batch...  that way the salt/pound is consistent.... Just my 2 cents..   Dave

Just so we're all on the same page, 8 grams of salt is slightly less than 1 1/2 teaspoons( 1.41 to be exact).

BTW the maximum recommended salt intake for an adult is 6 grams/day.

Cliff, I am not sure where you got your numbers.... RDA is 2400 grams of salt per day....  8 grams per pound is not too close to that unless you are going to eat 300 #'s of meat...

 I do not mean to call you out on this, but on this forum, the facts and health safety are number one....  My appologies in advance for this post...

Of course no one would put all that rub on one piece of chicken. So the salt intake can't be that much

Not a problem, I made that post because I wanted to know how the gram weight translated to the more traditional volume measurements. If I had a food scale I would also convert all my rub recipes from volume to weight measurements.
