Derek Wolf | Nashville Hot Chicken | BBQ Rub

If you love sweet, spicy and savory, then you are going to love this Nashville Hot Chicken rub. Having lived most of my life in Nashville, its chicken is insane. Hot Chicken is more or less fried chicken in a spicy rub that will be combined with oil and drizzle over top of the chicken. While most Nashville Hot Chicken joints make extremely spicy blends, this rub is pretty moderate. You can try this rub the traditional way or go crazy with it on chicken, pork, cauliflower, salmon, chickpeas, roasted nuts, or roasted veggies.

What Is Nashville Hot?

If you’ve ever been to Nashville, Tennessee you have most likely gotten your hands on some Nashville Hot Chicken. A local delicacy, this fried chicken combines spicy and sweet, to offer a punch of flavor and a balance on the palate when eating. The heat and the sweet meld together with the juicy chicken to offer an incredible experience.

The Nashville Hot flavor combines sugar, chili powder, paprika, garlic and onion to provide a moderately spicy flavor.

How Can The Nashville Hot Rub Be Used?

At Spiceology, we created this blend to elevate your favorite BBQ recipes, partnering with Chef Derek Wolf of Over the Fire Cooking, to ensure it adds flavor to any BBQ you make.

The best way to use this rub would be as a dry rub for BBQ. Obviously, the best protein to put it on is chicken, such as a grilled thigh or breast, but the rub can also add to any pork, beef or lamb cuts as well. It can also be mixed into your favorite marinades to add that sweet and spicy kick!
