Last night I was testing another recipe for Robyn and was almost 100% sure that I would not like it. Why? Because I don't like dark meat: especially thighs. And because the rub included some of the spices I like the least: nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, etc.
But surprise, surprise, after making the recipe, I thought the end result was fantastic! Guess the garlic and onion powders together with cayenne offset the other things I did not like. Just proves the point: you never know till you try.
