Twinkies (not Texas ones), bacon wrapped chicken leg dipped in spicy bbq sauce and garlic and rosemary lamb with charred greens and rustic potato bake plus corn.
I usually cook them whole and cut them up after cooking but I liked the way you splayed it open so thought I'd try that this time.Subbed.
I do like a bit of crisp on the outside. Going to start it out at a low temp to give the smoke time to settle in, then a short time up high for the crisp. Cooking with oak but have a small metal bowl of apple wood chips soaking in water to set down by the coals and plenty more to add to the coals for a quicker release of smoke throughout. WIll be finishing up back down low on the temp with a few slatherings of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. I'm hoping it turns out ok, sure don't want to dry it out. I need to get one of those digital probes, I don't want to be stabbing a bunch of holes in the chicken with my manual read ones to check internal temp.I'm A big fan of cooking the whole bird.You really can't go wrong with Spatchcocked when grilling. It cooks faster and you get more crispy skin. I use a digital read meat probe and pull it when it hits 165. I already know that is going to be some amazing chicken.
I haven't seen that style of lawn chair in probably 30 years lolPlease excuse the fugly mug, just enjoying a glass of that All Y'all wine I picked up at Enoch's Stomp yesterday while I check my chicken. Skol. I don't usually drink wine but man, only a half a glass in and this is some pretty potent stuff lol

I don't think I've ever met a barbeque sauce I didn't like.@HydeWhyte if you haven't tried Head Country BBQ sauce give it a try, it's almost as good as my homemade Sweet and Tangy sauce 😁
I have...Kraft. KC Masterpiece is my favI don't think I've ever met a barbeque sauce I didn't like.
The final product doesn't really look any different than the last pic I posted. Taste was good but I think I want to work on the brine thing, maybe not marinate it quite so long. Thinking of adding some other flavor to it just haven't decicded what to try next time, maybe a little apple or pineapple juice. It was good and nice & moist. The wife loved the breasts (which she normally isn't a fan of, usually says the white meat is dry no matter where the chicken comes from).What happened, Hyde? You left us hanging without any finished pics lol. How was it??
