Ackerman's Chipotle Rub


2 anchos, stemmed and seeded
5 dried chipotles, stemmed and seeded
5 cloves garlic, peeled
1 tablespoon Mexican oregano
1/3 cup kosher salt
2 anchos
2 cascabels
1 pasilla
1 canned chipotle
4 cloves garlic, unpeeled, pan roasted
1 large tomato, pan roasted and seeded

Bill Ackerman has improved a rub from 'La Parilla'. It is pretty basic--just anchos, chipotles, oregano, garlic and salt. But, boy howdy, is it good! Last night I rubbed pork chops and grilled them. Served with a basic red chile sauce. Pan roast chilies and oregano until fragrant. When cool, grind in spice mill with garlic and salt. I'm not sure of Bill's proportions but this is what I have been using. For the sauce, stem and seed the dried chilies. Toast them in a heavy skillet until fragrant. Grind when cool in a food processor. Add tomatoes, garlic and chipotle. Add enough water to make it pourable. Strain in a food mill. Pour it back in the skillet and heat to bubbling. Salt to taste. Sugar to taste, if necessary. I tried the rub on chicken. Then I started a lump charcoal fire, put the chicken in the cold cooking chamber, threw on heavy apple wood smoke initially and slowly ran the temp up to 350F over 1.25 hours. The chicken was moist with a crispy skin. Posted to the BBQ List on June 8, 1998 by Kit Anderson - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
