Dry Rub for Chicken

Cook’s notes: Adapted from the book Cheater BBQ. This is my favorite spice mix for chicken. It is especially good on the slow cooker whole chicken.

Mix the following ingredients thoroughly. Use 6 tsp of rub mix for each whole chicken:

1/4 cup paprika (1 oz bag)
2 Tablespoons salt (coarse cooking salt)
2 Tablespoons black pepper
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon cumin powder

Makes at least half cup of spice mix, enough for at least three chickens.
