The Portugese Chook

You can never have too many marinade ideas for barbecuing! The good thing about dry rubs is that you can easily carry them anywhere, and won't go bad - perfect for camping! Here is my favorite dry rub recipe for Portugese BBQ Chicken, right from my backyard.

Gather the following: For a kilogram of bone-in chicken (I went with chicken drumsticks), you'll need 2 tablespoons of sweet paprika, 2 tablespoons of dried oregano, 2 tablespoons of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of onion powder, 1 tablespoon of cumin powder, a teaspoon of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of cayenne pepper powder, ground 1/2 bay leaf, a pinch of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of lemon rind, and salt and black pepper to your discretion.

Mix together and apply with a little olive oil to skin-on, bone-in chicken, and let sit for a bit before chucking them on the nearest BBQ you can find!
