  • Sprinkle the chicken with the 321 Spice Blend until evenly coated on all sides. Place the chicken on the smoker over indirect heat and cook for 1 to 2 hours.

  • Pull the meat off the bones, mixing the dark and white meat. Spread some dressing on one side of each piece of bread. Place the warm smoked chicken on the bottom piece of bread and top with the Cabbage Salad. Place the cheese on top of the cabbage and then finish with the top piece of bread. Place on a sandwich press until golden brown and crisp, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the garlic powder, black pepper and salt and mix until combined. Yield: 6 cups

Cabbage Salad:
  • Add the cabbage, jalapenos, carrots, onions and bell peppers to a large bowl and toss until evenly distributed.

  • In a large saucepot set over medium heat, add the sugar, vinegar, oil, hot sauce and celery salt, and bring to a simmer. Stir until well blended and the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and stir in the mustard. Pour the warm dressing mixture over the cabbage salad and toss. Add the celery seeds and mix well. Yield: 5 pints
