Going simple tonight, trying my first beer can chicken ever.
Starting out, brined for 3 hrs in sea salt with a tiny bit of BP pepper garlic salt added. Half a can of beer with a shot of tequila.
Rubbed with EVOO, butter, and BP Money.
On the grill @ 325 with bbq delight mesquite pellets.
Done, about 2 hours later:
Sorry, my carving skills suck, my knife's not great, and this chicken was so tender it was hard to cut without it just falling apart.
Verdict: yummy! The skin and dark meat were fantastic. The breast was a tiny bit on the dry side, probably coulda pulled it a little earlier, but it was still tender; I'm not a huge fan of chicken white meat anyway so I'm not the best judge. My cat loved it. I didn't even make it to the table, just sat at the counter and ate. Kids got their drumsticks, wife got her mixed plate - everyone was happy.
So, nothing ground-breaking here, just simple good chicken. Definitely a step above your usual store roasted whole chickens, at least!
