I use a lot of products from Stubb’s, from sauces to marinades. I’ve been very happy with them all. That’s why I decided to use some of Stubb’s chicken rub on a whole chicken and drop it into my (awesome) cooker, the Char-Broil Big Easy. As always, the Big Easy was easy, cooking the bird in 15 minutes per pound.The Stubb’s seasoning added a little sweetness, and a kinda different flavor, mustard. I’ve rubbed beef in mustard before but never added mustard flavor to chicken. It was fantastic!
I did make my chicken a beer can chicken by adding a bit more Stubb’s chicken rub to a can of beer that I then inserted into the chicken. You can skip that part if you wish, or use an empty soda can with chicken broth added. There’s no wrong here because the Big Easy cooks chicken right every time. And boy, does the skin comes out crispy and dangerously delicious to say nothing of how tender and moist the meat is, dark or white!
