If you don't have kosher salt, you can use table salt in a pinch. Just use 2 teaspoons of table salt for each tablespoon of kosher salt.

It might be also noted that using Kosher Salt instead of Table Salt in the rub is not so much for salt flavoring but because its large crystals draw moisture out of meats and other foods more effectively than other salts.
Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.
