Give your traditional barbeque sauce the year off and give this tangy spice rub a try this holiday weekend -- no matter what part of the chicken you’re planning on grilling.

For 4 pounds of chicken, mix together 2 teaspoons of ground black pepper, 1 teaspoon of turmeric, 4 teaspoons of kosher salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar. About an hour before grilling, use your hands to rub the spice mixture into the chicken.

What really makes this dish pop is fresh lime juice. Once the chicken is fully cooked, remove it from the grill and squeeze two limes over the top and then serve.

Happy Fourth!
