Love, love, love it! This is by far my favorite grill seasoning. I make a big batch and keep it in a recycled spice shaker for quick use. The white BBQ sause is not for everyone (my husband is not a fan of tangy sauces) by those that love it really LOVE it! We have this any night of the week and on special occassions. It was a big hit this Fourth of July. We served the chicken with baked beans, potato salad, and fresh grilled corn with chipotle lime butter.

We had this dish at a large family gathering and everyone loved it!! The spices on the grilled chicken married with the white BBQ sauce was so tasty! It was a hit! Bonus is that it is prepared ahead, so it makes a great meal for a large quantity! Also, we used breasts, and it was great as well!!

There is a clickable link to the white barbeque sauce recipe at the bottom of the ingredients list. It's yummy! I would also use it on fish, with french fries, and on veggies. It tasted great with broccoli! The chicken rub looks good, although we haven't yet tried it. Looks slightly similar to a jerk rub that we love and use regularly.
