(Some Seasoned Guy)   KC Masterpiece Barbecue Seasoning. It's discontinued. It was subby's and subby's family's favorite inexpensive, dry seasoning for chicken. Anyone have a good substitute or a recipe to recreate it?   (kcmasterpiece.com) divider line

Can you still get some through Amazon?  Buy a couple bottles and try reverse-engineering it.  It's a fun way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon and you might end up with something that's actually better.

Why is it even legal to list these like this?

I'd suggest playing around with a mixture of brown sugar, a salty seasoning blend (old bay, Tony Chachere's cajun blend or season all) and whatever you have in your spice rack or what flavors you prefer.

My family uses this on chicken quite a bit if we're not using a specific recipe. It works across all types of cooking too.

The McCormick stuff is good. There are several flavors, be light on the bacon chipotle if you try that.

I know this is about KC seasoning but just wanted to offer my go-to chicken seasoning/rub nowadays.

- Spatchcock or halve chicken.

- Rub a mixture of kosher salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and ground mustard under the skin

- Refrigerate for 2-6 hours (longer the better).

- Pat dry chicken and drizzle extra virgin olive oil over pieces, then rub Za'atar spice blend over/under skin

- Roast at 475 or on indirect heat on grill


Serve with sumac onions and tehina sauce, and roasted/fried cauliflower as a side.

If you can't make a better BBQ sauce than store bought, you ain't been trying.

If it was sold in another country, their labeling laws may have listed what the "spices" were.
The FDA may also have a list of what is allowed to be referred to as just "spices", might narrow it down.
It's likely just pepper tho'

I've had good results in a brown sugar-based rub.
Ginger, coriander, cayenne pepper, cumin, black pepper, salt, garlic powder.

The sweet/spicy vibe lights up pork ribs. Beef, not so much.

The McCormick Grill Mates Smokehouse Maple is one of my faves.

We still have several bottles, it's not available anywhere anymore.

I have considered trying to reverse-engineer it, but admittedly if someone has a recipe already that manages to identify what the bottle calls "various spices" it would help.

You can pretty close with things that are labelled "Cajun." To me, it tasted a lot like Lawry's Seasoned Salt Tony Chachera's.
