Thumbs up Human Experimentation with Big Butz Chicken Dust Rub

I recently ordered a fresh supply of some must have Big Butz BBQ Sauces. When they arrived I found a special gift inside!



There was also an empty jar...and I'll get to that at a later time.

So I had to decide, what rub to try first? Well, since it's just my 11 year old son Dylan and myself for dinner tonight, chicken seems to make a lot of sense!

Behold! Chicken Dust!



Here's what it looks like when it's not glistening in the sunlight...



A taste right out of the bag told me it was going to be good on chicken. It had a really good flavor that immediately conjures up a match for chicken. The granules were larger on my tongue than I thought they looked in the bag, and this made the flavor linger. I would be surprised if this chicken tonight did not turn out good. I would have to screw it up.

I decided to get the best impression of the flavor I would put this on some boneless skinless chicken breast!



Since it's called Chicken Dust, I gave the chicken a little dusting with the stuff.



I let that mingle while I got the kettle fired up. I asked Dylan if he wanted to be a Guinea Pig. He sure thought that was a cool idea!



Believe it or not, that is a smile. He really does the weirdest smile for the camera, but the most amazing part is that he actually looked at the camera! Actually, I did get a bigger smile, but no eye contact...



As the grill got going and he realized he was going to try something new, you could see him get that look of anticipation!



OK, back to the rub experiment...(did you notice I put up my Mad Scientist logo again because I am doing human experimentation in the name of science on behalf of Big Butz in order to further the cause of BBQ worldwide?) The grill was ready and the chicken looked like it took a liking to the rub.



I put the breasts on offset from the coals to start...



Then when it was just after the time just prior to being too soon to flip it without slipping to the time just after when it would be the correct time which was pretty much the amount of time it takes a decent reader to read the new Throwdown the breasts looked like this.



So I flipped them.



A similar amount of time later I flipped them again and put them over some direct heat.



About the time it took me to look around the yard and determine it was now the correct time I flipped them again.



And waited for them to reach the right temperature. Sadly, this thermo only goes to 1/10 of a degree, but this should be about right.



Withe the breasts of chicken thusly prepared, I let them rest for a bit while we eagerly waited to dig in!



I sliced them up...



...and instructed myself and the other guinea pig to eat slowly to determine the yummy factor.



As you can tell, the eating was fast and furious!



My verdict? I really liked it. It was mighty good. I could definitely see myself ordering this. More testing is necessary of course, but I give this the highest marks.

As for Dylan, well, he's autistic (very much so actually) so getting a good read from him can be difficult. He usually just says it's either yummy or yucky, and that's all there is. He said this was yummy!

Then a thought crossed my head to gauge how much he liked it. I asked him if it was 1 yummy or 2 yummies. He said, "Two yummies". Then I asked if it was 2 yummies or 3 yummies and he said, "Three yummies daddy". So I continued and each time he held up a finger. When we got to either 9 or 10 yummies he said it was 10 yummies! So I asked him if it was 10 yummies or 11 yummies just in case he was simply picking the larger number every time and he said, "No, 10 yummies". So there you have it. It was 10 yummies.

Also...I must point out that Big Butz mentioned in a note describing the rubs that his wife felt that chicken made with Chicken Dust did not require any sauce and she preferred it without. I agree. No sauce was used in this testing, and frankly, it wasn't needed.

Ahhhh, I think Master has finally returned. When can we begin more experimentation? I (Gore) am ready, Master.

You know what I like better than the positive results? How much of a great time it appeared you and your son had with the experiment. To me that was the best part of all! Look forward to hearing more.

I believe on Sunday the magic of Dah Butz in Da Woodz will fill the jar with something extra special. But first, you have to believe in magic...
