   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4  cup           Inner Beauty -- or other
                         hot sauce -- OR
   10                    Scotch bonnet chile -- pureed
 					
   15                    Chile, fresh -- your favorite
    2      tablespoons   Rosemary -- dried
    2      tablespoons   Parsley -- chopped
    2      tablespoons   Basil -- dried
    2      tablespoons   Thyme -- dried
    2      tablespoons   Mustard seeds
    3                    Scallions -- finely chopped
    1      teaspoon      Salt
    1      teaspoon      Black pepper
                         Juice of 2 limes
      1/4  cup           Mustard -- cheap prepared
    2      tablespoons   Orange juice
    2      tablespoons   White vinegar
    6                    Chicken leg quarter
 
 Combine all the rub ingredients in a food processor, or blender, and blend
 them into a paste, making sure that all the ingredients are fully integrated.
 The paste should be approximately the consistency of a thick tomato sauce. If
 it is too thick, thin it out with a little more white vinegar.  Cover the
 paste and let it sit n the refrigerator for at least 2 hours for the flavors
 to blend together.  Overnight is the ideal amount of time to give them to get
 acquainted.
 
  (**NOTE** If you want to avoid making a fresh batch every time you make this
  dish, you can multiply the amount of paste easily.  Don't worry about it
  going bad, since it keeps almost indefinitely.)  Rub the chicken leg quarters
  with paste and place them on the grill over very low heat.  If you have a
  covered cooker, put the coals to one side and the chicken on the other, and
  cover.
 
  Cook about 1 hour without a cover or 1/2 hour if covered.  The key here is to
 use a very low heat.  You need to be patient and give yourself plenty of time.
 The chicken is technically done when the meat is opaque and the juices run
 clear.  However, the ideal is about 10-15 minutes past that point, when the
 meat pulls away from the bone easily. It is very hard to overcook this. In
 fact you can only screw it up if you burn the paste by having the heat too
 high.  The longer the chicken stays on the grill, the more superior the smoky
 flavor.  After cooking, separate the leg from the thigh by cutting at the
 natural joint between them. Serve one leg or thigh per person accompanied by a
 few spoonfuls of Banana-guava ketchup.
 
  Serves 4 as an entree or 6 as a light meal.
