This Applewood Chipotle Rub is destined to become one of our most popular blends. We’ve used this on everything from chicken to salmon to ribs. Any great rub for the grill or smoker tends to have three things to form the foundation - sugar, salt and paprika.
If you’ve ever tasted truly great barbeque, it is most likely that a dry rub was used. Dry rubs give meats (especially chicken, fish or pork) a memorable flavor. If you’re not familiar with a dry rub it is a seasoning blend of dry spices, herbs and sometimes salt. The seasoning is shaken onto the meat and then rubbed (or more likely patted) evenly on all sides before cooking. This helps to form a tasty crust that contains tremendous flavor.
Ingredients: Granulated honey, smoked apple wood sea salt, California paprika, garlic, onion, chipotle powder, black pepper and chipotle flakes
