Awesome Dry Rub for Poultry

I played around with a dry rub mix to use primarily on chicken. I’ve used this on recipes in my smoker, on the grill, and in the oven with excellent results. Once you make a batch, keep it in a tightly sealed jar and it will last for months. Note: This is a hot rub; so if you want to make it milder, then moderate the cayenne pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, and the chipotle chili powder. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
