Habanero Brisket Rub Recipe

Posted by Bradley47 | 11:48 AM |

Ingredients:

Four habanero peppers, seeds removed, minced
Three tablespoons onion powder
One tablespoon kosher salt
One tablespoon sugar
One tablespoon ground black pepper

Directions:

Combine the ingredients and store in an airtight container (preferably glass) for several days. The heat from the peppers will migrate throughout the dry ingredients during this time.

Season the brisket on all sides, rubbing the dry rub in well. I suggest using disposable rubber gloves for this task. Wrap the brisket in plastic and let it rest overnight in the fridge before smoking.

After processing the peppers, clean cutting boards, knives, and anything else that contacted the habaneros thoroughly. Getting habanero juice in the eye is not a pleasurable experience.

Chicken Dry Rub

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons non-iodized salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 whole chickens, skin removed and separated into white and dark meat parts

Mix dry ingredients together in a small bowl and rub into the chicken, making sure to get the rub into the nooks and crannies. Let rub sit on the chicken for up to 12 hours in the refrigerator.

Preheat a grill to medium heat.

Place dark meat on the grill first because it has a longer cooking time than white meat. Grill until the internal temperature of the chicken is 180 degrees F for all parts except the breasts and is 165 degrees F for the breasts when measured with an instant-read thermometer. When chicken is almost finished grilling, baste it with a generous amount of barbecue sauce all over the meat. Save any leftover sauce for dipping.
