Shooter Ricks Snakebite Chicken Rub

  1. I hope that ShooterRick will approve of posting his recipe in the WIKI.

    Shooters Snake Bitten Chicken and Seafood Rub
    This recipe is my twist on jerk. It has a definite bite of spice coupled with the South American style hint of sweet to balance it out.

    3/4 cup raw sugar
    ¼ cup sea salt
    1tbs red pepper flakes
    1tbs garlic powder
    1tbs onion powder
    1tbs Hungarian Paprika
    2 tsp all spice
    1 tsp black pepper course
    1 tsp oregano
    1 tsp thyme
    1 tsp Wasabi powder
    1 tsp cumin

    Mix all and rub chicken well. Let set overnight in fridge and smoke to 170 degrees internal temp. Smoker at 275-300 degrees.

    The injection I like for this is 1 cup apple juice, 1 juice from whole Key Lime, 1 standard shot Meyers’s Rum

    Also good on seafood.

    Wasabi concerns. The thing I have found about Wasabi is that it brings the heat and then the heat is gone. It is a short-lived kinda bite with wasabi. I do not use it anywhere else other than the Snake Bitten Chicken recipe. It just seemed right for this recipe and I think it adds a touch of Horseraddish to it. After all in this country Wasabi is powdered horseraddish as true wasabi root loses its freshness very quickly.
