    Unfortunately, I lost my flash drive containing my recipes.

    Currently, I have a chicken marinating in Tips slaughterhouse brine.

    I need a good rub to use for when I grill the bird. I'm looking for something basic, which won't overtake the flavor of the brine.

    I ordered and just received a bottle of Simply Marvelous Cherry Rub but I don't know if this will be good for chicken. I prefer a sweeter rub for ribs.

    Thanks all!

    Here is one of my favorites 

    Shooters Snake Bitten Chicken and Seafood Rub
    This recipe is my twist on jerk. It has a definite bite of spice coupled with the South American style hint of sweet to balance it out.
    3/4 cup raw sugar
    ¼ cup sea salt
    1tbs red pepper flakes
    1tbs garlic powder
    1tbs onion powder
    1tbs Hungarian Paprika

    2 tsp all spice
    1 tsp black pepper course
    1 tsp oregano
    1 tsp thyme
    1 tsp Wasabi powder
    1 tsp cumin

    Mix all and rub chicken well. Let set overnight in fridge and smoke to 170 degrees internal temp. Smoker at 275-300 degrees.

    The injection I like for this is 1 cup apple juice, 1 juice from whole Key Lime, 1 standard shot Meyers’s Rum

    Also good on seafood.
