2 chickens, cut up 1/4 cup sugar 1 Tbs salt 2 Tbs mild chili powder 2 Tbs hot chili powder ( I used Gebherts) 1 tsp ground cumin 1 tsp Mex. oregano 1 tsp coriander 2 tsp dry mustard 1 1/2 Tbs minced lemon zest ( I used dried-purchased) 1-1/2 tsp onion salt 1-1/2 tsp garlic powder 2 tsp ground ginger 2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1. Loosen the skin on the chicken pieces, and put a generous amount of the combined spices under the skin. Then sprinkle generous all over the chicken, both sides. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hrs, the longer the better. Start up the grill, cook and smoke until done. Use a little pecan, apple or whatever wood to get the smoke going. The rub is enough to do 2 chickens. Also good on pork!
