How can I make the dry rub spicy?

If you like your seasoning blends with a bit of spice, you can include 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, chili flakes, or dried hot peppers like serranos or habaneros. You could also use ground chipotle powder for smoky heat. You could also add a dried ancho or guajillo pepper when you grind your spices.

Can I use a dry rub on a deep-fried turkey?

You sure can! In fact, dry rub is ideal for deep frying turkey because you don’t want to add other liquids, such as a marinade on your turkey’s skin when cooking in hot oil.
