Chicken piri piri is an African (Mozambican) hot very hot chicken on the grill

I adapted it to smoking

First I made the rub in a blender I put

Hot chillis,4 to 5 cloves of  garlic 1 table spoon of paprika

1 tea spoon salt, 1 table spoon coriander powder ,  juice of  1  lemon  and olive oil

 till it will turn to a paste like this

I took the chicken cut it in the back and butterfly it

Next morning  Into the smoker it goes  280 for 2 ½ hour  till it reach 170 at the breast.

I add legs with a quick rub of salt pepper, coriander, paprika and garlic powder

Nice looking bird.  What kind of chiles did you use?  Those look a little like fresh serranos.  We tried a different version using olive oil, brandy, and dried oriental peppers.  It was ok, but lacking in heat. 

 

Good luck and good smoking.

That's some good looking yard bird, I've seen Piri Piri recipes, but never know what the results would be like, I think I'll tone down the heat for mama and give it a shot.

 

I use a wooden spoon to spread the sauce under the skin, place the spoon upside down and loosen the skin from the tail, then go in from the neck and loosen the drumstick skin, stand the bird on it's neck and spoon in some sauce and spread it all over under the skin with the wooden spoon, that way I don't tear the skin with my hands and I can cover most of the flesh, ...one good favor deserves another.

 

Thanks.

MMM!  Fresh Cayennes.  I have a brown thumb, but I keep trying. 

 

I bet my Piri Piri would have been better with those.  I have never been able to buy Piri Piri's here, but I have been thinking about some Habaneros.  If I survive that experiment, I will let you know.

 

Good luck and good smoking.
