|The night before: cleaned chicken thighs|
|L to R - McCormick's Chicken Rub & Slap Yo Daddy Chicken Rub|
First impressions: As soon as I opened the USPS box the smell of cumin hit me hard. Not a huge fan of a lot of cumin but we'll see. The McCormick's has your standard "citrusy" aroma that most chicken rubs have.
|Top to Bottom - Slap Yo Daddy & McCormick's|
After 5 minutes of rubbing the chicken, Slap Yo Daddy rub immediately starts melting and giving the chicken that glow. The McCormick's is looking a little dry.
|70 minutes at 280 degrees later|
|After they're sauced up, it's hard to tell the difference, BUT, SYD's are at the bottom and not as dark.|
Mercy! Night and day I tell you. I can taste an immediate difference. I almost didn't even want to eat the McCormick's chicken because it tasted like Ox feces next to SYD's chicken rub. While SYD's rub had a strong smell of cumin, it did not come out in the taste and that is a good thing. I highly recommend Slap Yo Daddy's Chicken Rub! I just need to find a better sauce and a cleaner way to sauce the chicken with a more even coat. Outside of the physical blemishes, it tasted great.
Slap Yo Daddy Chicken Rub gets a 5 out of 5 stars.
