BBQ Chicken with Bones
Eating chicken with bones is a rarity these days. Boneless chicken is less troublesome. I have eaten so much boneless chicken I forgot how good chicken is with the bone. The bones, I think, hold more flavor in.
I wonder if someplace an enterprising chicken-breeder is trying to figure out how to get chickens to reproduce whole filet’ chickens? It should be fun watching the final products in the chicken yard flipping and flopping around.
Yesterday I thawed out a chicken with bones and I then I let it marinate in buttermilk overnight.
Today I dried the chicken and gave it a dry rub of salt, pepper, and spices. At noon I heated up one side of the grill and put the chicken parts on it for two minutes on each side to sear the meat.
Then I moved them to other side where the flame was not on. I let it cook with indirect heat for 40 minutes.
After 40 minutes I opened the lid and painted the chicken flesh with Big Arn’s Sho ‘Nuff BBQ Sauce. I closed the lid again for a minute. And then picked up the pieces and let them sit for about 10 minutes.
Man!!! It was fingernail licking good!
