 Ingredients List

  • ----------------------------------DRY RUB----------------------------------
  • 1/2 c Paprika
  • 1/4 c Golden brown sugar
  • 1/8 c Salt
  • 1/8 c Granulated garlic
  • 1/8 c Chipotle peppers; ground
  • 1 tb Celery salt
  • 1 tb Onion powder
  • 1 tb Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tb Chimayo red chile; ground


14 1/2 oz Canned chicken broth
1/2 c Orange juice
2 tb Worcestershire sauce
2 tb Above listed rub

I like the rub a lot. Needs more black pepper, though. To me, the thing
that makes this outstanding is the chipotles. And note that these are not
the canned ones in adobo - they're dried. This makes their smokiness a bit
more intense. You might not be able to find them, so just them out. Same
for the red chiles - or you could use cayenne instead. Experiment! Be

The mop wasn't bad, but I'll try something new next time. As far as I'm
concerned, it needs more tinkering.

For the trout, the rub consisted only of lemon pepper. The mop was some
terriyaki sauce with a little sugar mixed in. That's it!

As far as technique goes, this is what I did:

~ Night before: apply rub and pop food back in fridge. - Next day: take
food out of fridge and rest for an hour while smoker is coming up to temp
(220degF or so). - Put chickens on. Mop after first hour, then every half
hour after that. In retrospect, I will not mop this often in the future.
Once per hour will probably do me. Total smoking time was about 6 hours.
High winds. This was a problem, so your mileage may vary. I did move the
birds around so as to get more even heat districution. Probably did that
twice. - Put trout on. Mopped whenever I mopped the chickens. Total smoking
time was about 2 hours. - Although the trout was consumed immediately, I
let the chickens rest for about an hour afterwards.

I worried more about the chickens than I did about the trout, and I think
this affected the flavor - the trout was better! Don't fret too much over
this - it's supposed to be fun, right?

So that's it. Comments and musings always welcome. Have a super weekend
