Rate this recipe 4.5/5 (2 Votes)


  • For the chicken rub, you'll need...
  • 4 tablespoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon (or to taste) of cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage



Step 1

Combine all of the ingredients well. If the herbs are whole, break them up in a mortar and pestle, or rub them vigorously between your hands. Season the chicken on all sides. Let it rest in the fridge for an hour before smoking to give the flavors time to absorb. For more flavorful breast meat, put the chicken dry rub under the skin, right against the flesh.
