Pecking Order Smoked Chicken
Nothing enhances the flavor of chicken like smoke does. While there is often debate on what flavor wood is used to smoke the chicken, just about everyone agrees that smoked chicken is better than non-smoked chicken. Fortunately, Casa M Spice Co® offers a myriad of options for seasoning your smoked chicken to include Chain Reaction®, Pecking Order®, Good Shepherd®, Free Range®, Jerked Chain®, and Whole Hog®. Try them all and see which is your favorite. We're partial to all of them for different purposes (adding to cold salads, adding to pasta dishes, adding to tacos, adding to enchiladas, etc.
The oil helps the rub stick, but it also keeps the chicken moist while it's smoking and helps to lightly brown while it's cooking as well. The internal temperature of the chicken will continue to climb a little once you pull it from the smoker, but use an instant read thermometer to confirm it hits 160°F before serving.
As always, from our table to yours... #SpiceConfidently #EssenceOfFlavor #ChemistryInTheKitchen #CasaMSpice
