I. What are BBQ rubs?

BBQ rubs are spice blends that are used to add flavour to meat before cooking. They typically contain a mix of herbs, spices, and other ingredients that are designed to complement the flavour of the meat. Using BBQ rubs can take your chicken and potatoes to the next level, and we're here to help you get started!


II. Selecting the Right BBQ Rub

To get the best results, it's important to choose the right BBQ rub for your chicken and potatoes. There are many different types of BBQ rubs, each with its own unique flavour profile. In today’s cook, we are using the family favourite rub ‘Greek Gyros’ by Flaming Coals. 



Some great BBQ rubs to try for chicken and potatoes include:


III. Preparing the Chicken and Potatoes

Before applying the rub, it's important to prepare the chicken and potatoes. For the chicken, choose skinless chicken thighs for the best results. For the potatoes, cut them into small cubes.




IV. Applying the BBQ Rubs


To apply the BBQ rubs, simply sprinkle them generously over the chicken and potatoes, making sure to coat them evenly. Be sure to get the rub into all the nooks and crannies of the chicken and potatoes for maximum flavour.




V. Cooking the Chicken and Potatoes

To cook the chicken and potatoes, preheat your oven to 200°C. Place the potatoes into the oven and allow to cook until they are probing like butter.  Cook the chicken on medium-high heat in a well-oiled pan on a cooktop until they probe at 75°C. 




VI. Serving and Enjoying Your BBQ Chicken and Potatoes

To serve, let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving. Serve the chicken and potatoes with your favourite sides, such as a green salad or grilled vegetables. For an extra touch, sprinkle some fresh herbs over the top.


VII. Conclusion

Using BBQ rubs is a great way to add flavour and excitement to your chicken and potatoes. With so many different rubs to choose from, you can experiment with different flavours and find your favourites. We hope this blog post has inspired you to try something new in the kitchen and enjoy a delicious meal with family and friends!
