That chicken looks awesome, what kind of rub did you use?  I'm also interested in the achote rub you used on your pork butt for the tamales.

i use a brick of achiote paste, onion, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, and just enough water to puree in the blender.

You're killing me Rob. Great to see someone using an old spice like Achiote paste in a new world way.Also, congrats on a great choice of chile (peppers) you used on your ABT's, definitely a wake-up call. It's all good my friend.

Great looking bird. May have to try the achiote marinade if I can find it in my grocery store. By chance does Wal-Mart carry this paste?
