The BEST turkey rub this side of...well anywhere!

I made this from two recipes that I really liked but couldn't decide on!  So I made the decision to blend and I am sooooo glad I did.  I have never tasted a more flavorful turkey and the gravy was out of this world!  If you have a spare turkey just lying around, you should really try this...or go buy one and try it!  You will thank me for it.  All spices are dried spices, if you want to use fresh use 1/3 of the amount listed.  This amount should be more than enough for a whole turkey under and on the skin.

3 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons pepper
3 teaspoon thyme
3 teaspoons rosemary
6 tablespoons Chef John's Dry Rub
6 tablespoons brown sugar
3 cups water
6 tablespoons lime juice

Mix all ingredients well until there are no clumps.  Left up skin on the turkey breast and any other area you would like the seasoning under the skin.  Then sprinkle on top of the skin generously.  Bake according the directions on the turkey.  When done use your drippings for gravy and enjoy immensely!

I love the combination of rosemary & thyme. Where did you find the Ancho chili powder for Chef John's dry rub? I think I am going to try this on some chicken.

I buy the Ancho Chile Pepper from Safeway in the spices section. I am sure you will be pleasantly satisfied with the results.

Sounds really good, but I cannot do without sage and lots of it.

By all means, add it and tell me how it is :)

This sounds like it would be very runny with all that water and lime juice?
