    Paul's Cumin Chicken Rub

    Here's a quick and simple cumin flavored rub that everyone has loved so far, including my 4 and 2 year-old which is saying something! I usually use this on chicken thighs but it works on many other things. This has salt included as thighs really don't need to be brined. It seems nearly impossible to overcook those juicy pieces. Adjust the salt level as needed.

    2 T Paprika
    2 T Cumin
    1 t. Table Salt
    1/2 t. Onion Powder
    1/2 t. Garlic Powder
    1/2 t. Ground Black Pepper
    1/4 t. Cayenne

    Makes about 1/2 Cup.

    Enjoy!

      Add some chile powder, brown and white sugar and you have HRR!

      Well, now that I think about it, nearly all rubs start this way!

    Sounds good, add in chili powder and that looks exactly like my taco seasoning.

      Actually, you're right. The fajita seasoning I use adds chile powder and corn starch. Oh well, the kids do really like this rub on chicken!

        Cumin is great! Does the corn starch do anything other than thicken it up?

          Nope, just a thickener. So much better than the store bought packets that have about 20 unknown ingredients. I will have to get the details on that and post.

            Something to think about... the corn starch could help crisp the chicken skin, like Kathryn mentioned around here somewhere.

              True...although I usually have no trouble crisping the skin on chicken thighs with all that luscious fat they have!

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
