Chicken Wrapped Apple Sausage

1 cup apple juice
1/2 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon plus one teaspoon prepared brown mustard
2 tablespoons Rub

3/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup ground black pepper
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper

4 boneless, skinless, individual chicken breasts, pounded thin
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 chicken-apple sausages, such as Aidells'
1 1/2 teaspoons prepared brown mustard
1/4 cup minced onion
Additional Rub
1 tart apple, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chicken stock

Mix all the spices together in a bowl. Store covered in a cool
dark place.

About 2 to 3 hours before you plan to barbecue, combine the marinade
ingredients in a lidded jar. Place the chicken in a large plastic
bag or nonreactive dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken and
marinade it.

Prepare the smoker for barbecuing, bringing the temperature to 200
to 220 degrees.

Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and let it sit at room
temperature for about 20 minutes.

Warm the olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the
sausages and saute until just cooked through. Remove the sausages
from the skillet, saving the drippings. Cool the sausages briefly,
and then rub them with the mustard.

Drain the chicken, reserving 1 cup of the marinade. Arrange a
sausage on each chicken breast, sprinkling 1 or 2 teaspoons of the
onion over each portion. Wrap the chicken around the sausage,
securing each roll with toothpicks. It's not necessary to entirely
encase the sausages, but make the rolls as attractive as possible.
Sprinkle the tops of the rolls with dry rub.

Transfer the chicken to the smoker and cook until the chicken is
cooked through and tender, about 25 minutes.

While the chicken smokes, add the remaining onion and the apple to
the pan drippings and saute over medium heat until both begin to
soften. Pour in the stock and the reserved marinade and bring to
a boil. Boil for at least 5 minutes allowing most of the liquid
to evaporate.

Remove the chicken from the smoker and arrange each chicken breast
on a plate. Spoon equal portions of the apple mixture over the
chicken and serve hot.
