  • 2 pounds chicken breast
  • 1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray's)

The Rub:

  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp clove
  • 1/2 tsp cumin

Cooking Instructions[edit]

1. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel. Once slightly dry, apply rub generously, rubbing into the skin. You can be rough, it won't shout much. Allow to sit for at least 1/2 hour prior to grilling.

2. Cook on grill. I know this is a difficult concept so I will explain it. Place chicken over direct heat for 1 to 2 minutes per side to sear rub on the chicken. Move to indirect heat for the rest 6 to 7 minutes per side. With a few minutes left on the grill, apply BBQ sauce generously.

3. Serve.

Additional Comments[edit]

The rub can be stored for a month or so in an airtight container and stored in the frig. This rub is excellent with red meats of all sort and vegetables. You can adjust the level of heat by adding more cayenne pepper in the mix.
