This blend has the ideal balance of sweet and heat. We absolutely love the sweet taste provided by the honey combined with the smoky flavor of the ground chipotle powder. The granulated honey really helps to form an ideal crust that all good grilled or smoked chicken, fish and ribs should have. The crust helps seal in the moisture and makes for a juicier meat.
Apply our Honey Chipotle Rub liberally on all sides of your chicken, fish or pork. As a rule of thumb we recommend starting out with 1 tablespoon of rub per pound of meat (for fish use half that amount). Because of the salt in this blend there is no need to use any kind of brine or marinade.
Once the rub is applied we like to let the chicken or pork "marinate in the seasoning" in the fridge. Once the rub has worked its way into the meat, it will look wet and tacky. Be sure to touch up any spots where the rub didn’t take during seasoning prior to cooking. For best results apply the rub to your chicken or pork at least 2 hours in advance of hitting the grill, oven or smoker. For fish or seafood only let the seasoning marry for about 30 minutes before cooking.
Our Honey Chipotle Rub is hand blended from granulated honey, sea salt, onion, paprika, chipotle powder and Italian seasoning.
