Spice Rub

You will need about 1/4 cup of the dry spice rub mix to cover a whole chicken, so this is enough for about 4 uses.

  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp dried onion bits
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme
  • 1 tbsp rock salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried garlic flakes
  • 1 tsp roasted ground cumin
  • 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 2 tsp rainbow peppercorns

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until well combined. Store in an airtight container or grinder until needed.
