This is Mike Mills and Amy Mills Tunnicliffe’s “Magic Dust” dry rub recipe which they have so graciously shared with all of us. They say the container that holds their Magic Dust is the most frequently stolen item from their restaurant, so maybe they figure if they just give us the recipe they thievery will stop.
1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup kosher salt, finely ground
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons mustard powder
1/4 cup chili powder
1/4 cup ground cumin
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
1/4 cup granulated garlic
2 tablespoons cayenne
If you want a little more kick in your chicken you can increase the black pepper and mustard powder to a 1/4 cup each. Of course you can use this dry rub on almost any meat that you’re grilling.
Generously coat both sides of chicken with the dry rub right before it hits the grill.
