Here is a great go-to recipe when you need to impress your in-laws, company, or just a romantic dinner for two. Beer Butt Chicken.
I am totally joking.
Who would of thought of this cooking method for chicken? It's so strange but it makes a delicious roast chicken. I have made this dinner many of times and I have tried many rubs but this one is the best rub by far! I even purchased a overly priced rub and it doesn't even come close to the flavor from this simple homemade recipe.
If you don't have kosher salt, go buy it. Kosher salt is great for bbq, rubs, and grilling; it creates a great crust on the meat. I have a massive spice collection so I was lucky enough to be able to just whip up this rub in no time.
Don't be shy...Grab a beer, a chicken, stir up the rub and
lose Swiss Chalets number.
