10 medium habaneros -- pureed in 1/4 cup mustard
1 tablespoon ground allspice
2 tablespoons dried rosemary
2 tablespoons dried basil
3 bunches scallions
1 teaspoon salt
2 medium two limes -- juice of
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons parsley
2 tablespoons dried thyme
2 tablespoons mustard seed
1 teaspoon black pepper
6 pieces chicken thighs with legs -- chopped

Preparation / Directions:

Combine all ingredients except chicken in food processor or blender, and blend into a paste, making sure that the ingredients are all fully integrated. The paste should be the consistency of a thick tomato sauce. If its too thick, thin it with a little more white vinegar. Cover the paste and let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, but not more that 2 weeks, for the flavors to blend together. Overnight is ideal. Rub the chicken with the paste and place over a very low heat. Or if you have a covered cooker, put the coals to one side, the chicken to the other and cover. Cook about 1 hr without cover or 1/2 hr if covered. The key here is to use a very low heat. Be patient. Hard to overcook, the only way to screw it up is if you burn the paste by having the heat to high. The longer the chicken stays on the grill, the more superior the smoky flavor.
