Dry Rub

BBQ Sauce
  1. Combine all ingredients in saucepan over medium heat. Stir well.
  2. Bring to a slow boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes stirring occasionally as it cooks.

  • Saadia Qureshi

    How much meat is the dry rub for? I want to make about 20 pieces of legs and thighs. Should I cut the dry rub recipe in half? Thirds? What about the BBQ sauce? How much does the recipe make, and how much do you think I will need for the 20 pieces of chicken?
