Zesty Lemon Pepper Rub for Smoked Chicken

Zesty Lemon Pepper Rub for Smoked Chicken

5 mins

Cooking chicken in the smoker already gives the meat great flavor, but to really bump up the taste, use a smoked chicken rub before cooking. By actually working the seasoning into the meat, you can help the flavor really sink in.

Ingredients

FOR THE RUB

  • 4 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Ingredient Tips

DRY RUB
One great thing about using a dry rub is that you can let it rest on the meat hours before smoking, or you can use the rub just minutes before putting the meat in the heat. No matter how long you have to prepare the meat with a rub, you will have delicious flavor thanks to the added layer of the spices.
