Pork Spareribs and spatchcock chicken Chupacabra Style

I am cooking the ribs with a slather of spicy brown mustard, and 2 gringo's chupacabra rub, cooking at 275, indirect for about 4 hours with Central Market Mesquite Lump, Pecan wood chunks and Jack Daniels, smoking chips for smoke. 

 Then raises temp to 375 and cook the chicken, for about an hour and a half.  Chicken spatchcocked and rubbed with same chupacabra rub.

    Sounds good.

    If that's a 3-4lb. chicken I doubt it will take 1 1/2 at 375*. I just did one for some chicken for a chicken and sausage jambalaya I'm making for dinner and it only took about an hour @ 350*

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    It is a 4.35lbs, but do expect it to done earlier, thanks for the reminder, a bottle Goslin's Black Seal Rum is starting to give me dirty looks, so I might have to show it what fer.

    That's a good point @Dragonwmatches! I was basing my comments on a raised direct set-up.

    I keep seeing the "chupacabra" label these last couple weeks, I thought it was a rare North American mammal, like a Bigfoot.  History?

    I thought it was a devil-like creature from Latin countries (ie, Mexico) mythology. But what do I know?

    It is  a Latin  American mythical beast  used to scare the ninos into  behaving.  Basically it translates into Goat Sucker..  They come out at night and suck the brains/blood out of goats and little children who are misbehaving or out to late.

    I could use that at my house, to keep the little bastids around here in order as their parents don't.  :D

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...
