Bang, bang, you’re done. Keep some jerk rub in your spice cabinet and you can toss it on shrimp or chicken thighs. A little sweet salsa is easy to make and in 30 minutes you are ready to put on some Jimmy Buffett and chow down.
Dry rubs are a blend of ground spices for spreading on foods to add flavor. Wet rubs are essentially marinades and differ by incorporating oils and often acids such as lemon juice or vinegar (see Marinate). Dry rubs like this one and jerk rub have some advantages over marinades. The spices add a more intense flavor while helping create a crusty texture.
Use your hands for rubs (hence the term). If you don't want to touch the food, you can put it in a zipper bag and add the rub. Toss the bag to coat the food inside and then rub it through the plastic.

|8 ounces||boneless skinless chicken thighs|
|2 tsp||Jerk Rub|
Prepare the barbecue (medium heat) if the jerk is to be grilled. If using a grill pan instead of using a grill, preheat oven to 400°F and place the grill pan inside.
Place the thighs and jerk seasoning blend in a zipper bag, seal, and shake the bag until the thighs are thoroughly coated. Let marinate at least ten minutes.
Thread the thighs onto metal or soaked wooden skewers (for the grill). For the grill pan, spray the pan with oil and then place the thighs in the grill pan and return to the oven.
Grill on the barbecue or grill pan for about 4 minutes on the first side and then turn. Total cooking time will be about 8-10 minutes.
