I love a smokey rub with a little sweetness. We have been going a little crazy with using our Traegar Grill and have wanted to create a rub that is versatile and will provide great flavor whether you use a smoker, cooked in the oven, a gas or charcoal grill, or stove top. One of the necessities was that for this recipe that I didn’t want it to have was added sugar. Not because sugar is good or bad, I was challenging myself to really get creative and figure out how to create a subtle sweetness with adding in any type of sugar. Hint, cinnamon is the secret ingredient to giving the sweet flavor to this smokey recipe. You will be able to use this rub on any protein or even potatoes!

We tried this rub on brisket, chicken, shrimp, salmon, and potatoes. It is fantastic on every single dish we used it with! We also love bbq sauce and if you have someone in the fam that loves a good wet sauce on their smoked chicken, check out our easy to make homemade BBQ sauce here  It is also great for dipping the chicken in after with and extra kick of flavor. 

There are tons of recipes for seasonings or rubs out there but our favorite part about this one is the kick of smoke and hint of subtle sweetness. Our recipe makes enough for about 2 full chickens or around 8 chicken breasts and depending on the size of your chicken thighs about a dozen and a half. If you aren’t cooking for a crowd this is a perfect rub recipe to store in a jar for the next time you want a smokey slightly sweet seasoning for a protein.
