Chicken question

Postby ButcherBBQ » Wed May 11, 2011 6:10 am

Okay we cook mostly KCBS where we do parts, thinking about a few cooks south of the Red River, What is the most widely used method of cooking half chickens? In a butter bath, on the grill, in the smoker, or a combination?

We grill with indirect heat on a Weber 22.5". We have always made final table, and have a couple 1st places with that method.

I modified my Smokey Joe into a mini wsm, works perfect for 2 chicken halves, about 20 coals and up to temp in 5 minutes

Another briner here, pretty much always a top ten chicken but havent hit 1st again since I started cooking again early last year. Was away from competitive cooking and riding dirtbikes for several years now back. I find that there are many more competitors than before and many more rubs,spices, sauces and marinades ect.ect. right off the shelf that are very very good. The game has gotten tuff to win but its all the more fun to try. David your brisket injection is spot on so what ever you do with chicken should be too, I want some asap too and will gladly pay for it. Thanks for giving us the help we need to win. BTW I have placed well both with smoke and grilling chicken but I prefer the grill.

Good luck

We cook our chicken on a WSM with pecan. Takes 'bout 2-2 1/2 hours. We usually do OK. We also brine overnite.
Shiner Bock is the grease that helps us slide thru life.
