Actually I don't. I have mainly done pulled pork, briskets, ABTs, and a few different appieitzers. I have only recently started branching out into poultry. When I said I was a novice I wasn't trying to be modest. In fact, around these circles I would defenately be considered a rookie. I can pass on what I have collected to try, but I can't give any recommendations on them since I either haven't used them or only used them a couple of times. In the interest of sharing, and for what it is worth, here ya go:
(I don't remember where I got this one)
This is a great all purpose poultry rub. It works well on grilled chicken wings or even deep fried turkey. Use Hungarian Paprika if you can find it because it has a much richer, sweeter flavor.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Yield: Makes about 2 cups
3/4 cup paprika (Hungarian if you have it)
1/4 cup black pepper, freshly ground
1/4 cup celery salt
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons dry mustard
2 teaspoons cayenne
2 tablespoons lemon zest
Recipe by: The Smoker King
2-Tsp Garlic Powder
1-Tsp Mustard Powder
1-Tbsp Chili Powder
1-Tsp Onion Powder
I usually mix and store all ingredients in an empty seasoning container.
This recipe works well on chicken. I have had nothing but compliments. The rub is also complimented by using a finishing glaze or barbeque sauce on the chicken before it is done.
(I donl't remeber where I got this one either)
Mix together thoroughly the following:
1/4 cup sugar (Use "turbinado" or "sugar in the raw" for for added flavor, but either works fine.
1/4 cup sweet paprika (Hungarian, if you can get it)
3 tblsp kosher salt
1 tblsp ground pepper (fresh peppercorns recently ground!)
1 tblsp garlic powder or 2 tblsp granulated (not garlic salt)
1 tblsp onion powder
1 tblsp chile powder (no, it will not be "hot")
1 tblsp cayenne pepper
Store in a tightly sealed container, and refrigerate, to maintain freshness, for up to 4 months.
(This one I have tried on wings a couple of times. I was fine, but I think the dominate flavor was in the sauce I finished them with)
2 1/2 tablespoons ground black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
There ya go - use at your own risk!
