This Smoked Chicken (rub) is so amazing! The spices are perfect and you can taste them in the meat itself. I had to stop myself at 3 pieces or I would of kept eating it, They are that good! I will be making this recipe a LOT to take to work. You can also Bake, Fry or grill, these are smoked, the spice is out of this world! No more KFC for me!~
