Here is an Old Bay Recipe knock off , which I use. You may want to increase the celery seed a tad, other than that it's all good. Try it on your chicken, or try it as a new and different rub. It's all good there too! Any way here it is.

[h1]Delmarva Seasoning (Old Bay Substitute) Recipe #170734 [/h1]
As all you crab afficionados know, the term "Delmarva" refers to the coastal areas bordering on the states of Delaware (Del), Maryland (mar)and Virginia (va) where the world's best crabmeat is harvested. Thing is that a lot of people go to a lot of trouble (and a lot of expense) to buy the best lump crabmeat available -- but then they use a mass-produced commercial product to season it. Weird! This recipe for 'homemade' seasoning is courtesy of Epicurious. All you Old Bay die-hards, I defy you to try it and tell me you can't taste a difference!! :)

  1. Combine all ingredients, stirring well to mix.
  2. Stored in a tightly-sealed container in a cool, dark place, seasonings will keep indefinitely.
  3. (Note: To give you a hint of how far this will go -- My favorite crab cake recipe is #81656 by pgserver6. To serve 10 people, this calls for 2 teaspoons of seasoning.).
