Boucane Dry Rub
Net Wt. 150g | Product by Touloulou creole shop
This blend has been carefully crafted to recreate the French Caribbean staple that is Poulet Boucane (smoked Chicken)
This type of chicken is first marinated overnight, then smoked completely enclosed in a metal container on a rack placed over charcoal, soaked bread and pieces of sugar cane. Use our Boucane blend on any poultry for a Sunday BBQ you will remember.
Boucaner is a preservation technique for game and especially for fowl and fish. It consists of drying the food, that has been seasoned with spices, on a fire. This “boucanage” gives a special flavour to the dishes, and when done on a woodfire, the taste is the best. An oven or bbq works also, but the taste will be different.
Boucanée cuisine is the process of steaming meat or fish in smoke. Its main advantage was that it allowed the meat to be stored for six months. It will be taken over by the pirates present in the area who will entrust buccaneers in the various islands to provide them with pork, wild boar and beef. This meat was then sold to crews who sometimes left for long crossings. Today the buccaneer is still used to cook meat but more with the aim of consuming the meat immediately. Many roadside vendors sell whole smoked chickens. Watch this video for additional information.
