In a large bowl, whisk together Blackbeard's Torment hot sauce, olive oil, lime juice, salt, garlic powder, cumin, and paprika until well combined.
Add chicken pieces to the bowl and toss to coat with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to overnight.
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
Thread the chicken pieces onto the soaked wooden skewers, alternating with diced papaya.
Grill the skewers for 6-8 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through and lightly charred.
Serve the skewers hot, with additional Blackbeard's Torment hot sauce for dipping, if desired.
These chicken skewers are a flavor explosion that will satisfy your craving for heat and spice. The sweetness of the papaya balances out the intensity of the scorpion peppers, while the rum adds a subtle, but distinct, depth of flavor. Give it a try, if you dare!
