    Chicken Rubs / marinade suggestions please!

    So next weekend I’m going to be doing my second big cook for around 40/50 people! I’m going to be smoking up a lot of pulled pork (I’m English and my smoker blows my guests minds!) then the plan is to accompany them with hotdogs and chicken drumsticks/thighs and side dishes etc.

    If I’m not using a commercial rub my current go to for chicken is to marinade for a few hours in the following;

    olive oil
    red red wine vinegar
    lemon juice
    garlic
    oregano
    salt/pepper

    which give a nice Greek style flavour. However, I want to serve up a few different types of flavours so has anyone else got any go tos? I need to go fairly low hassle for preparing en mass and will be grilling on high heat on my Weber gas with a lot of turning so can’t try some of Meatheads recipes on this occasion (although I think i’ll Give the Simon Garfunkel rub a try!)

    thanks as always!

      I'd recommend looking at Old Bay Seasoning. Ditto on Weber kickin' chicken.

        Oak Ridge BBQ has several award winning chicken, pork and beef rubs I love all their stuff. I don't make my own anymore since I hooked up with them and cooking for crowds so often I appreciated finding a good rub I could purchase in bulk of this quality and freshness.

            This is the only meathead rub I've tried so far that I did not like.

          For something different look at Vivian Howard’s blueberry bbq sauce recipe. http://biggreenegg.com/wp-content/up...ry-Chicken.pdf It is really good and unique.

                I use Tony Chachere's on pork, ribs, beef and chicken. Just enough kick to blend nicely with the smoke. I've tried several rubs, and keep coming back to Tony's.

                Thanks for all the suggestions, seems like ordering tubs is the way forward! I’ve already made a big tub of MMD for the pork butts so going to scope out the above suggestions on amazon for the chicken! Btw just to confirm, the Weber kickin chixken os the rub recipe on the website? It can’t be bought ready made and I haven’t seen it?

                thanks

                  Malcolm Reed's Cajun Rub! From his Cajun Turkey recipe/process:

                  http://howtobbqright.com/2017/11/09/...smoked-turkey/

                  I adapted it to be no salt so I can dry-brine the chickens for a few hours, then rub (under skin and on top) with this:
                  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
                  • 2 Tablespoons Paprika
                  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano Leaves
                  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Thyme Leaves
                  • 1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
                  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Parsley Leaves
                  • ½ Tablespoon Course Ground Black Pepper
                  • ½ tsp Cayenne
                  • ¼ tsp White Pepper

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                    the good one grill

                    The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                    masterbuilt gas smoker

                    Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing.
