Discovered this in an extraordinary cookbook, Keeping the Feast, by the Women of St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Abingdon, Va. I prefer the sweeter and more gentle flavor of Rose's lime juice. I usually am more generous with the onion, and the hot sauce as well, but not TOO much. You can use boneless and skinless pieces but bones and skin equate to more flavor. And if you're not grill savvy, that's what they make the good old-fashioned broiler for.
