101 Cooking For Two - Everyday Recipes for Two: Alabama BBQ Chicken with White BBQ sauce

Alabama BBQ Chicken with White BBQ sauce

They eat really good in Alabama. This is a Cooks Country recipe but really it is all over the net with only minor variations. I'm just pointing it out to you.

CC used half chickens and I used pre-cut whole chicken for my convenience. It did cook a lot faster, making this in about an hour including soaking some wood chips and preheating the grill.

Rating 9.3  Taste 9.5 Ease 9.0

Notes: I broke out the sauce recipe into a separate post HERE. I will be repeating this many times with just a couple of split chicken breast cut in half. I'm never quit satisfied with what to do with them. I tend to be lazy about smoking things but it really did add a lot to the flavor here.
I cut the breasts in half to make the pieces closer to the same size to have equal cooking. Last, I used twice the rub due to more surface area because of the cut up chicken and also my personal taste

Tools: Gas grill set up for smoking

Ingredients:
1 cut up whole chicken
1 cup smoking chips

Rub:
2 t table salt
2 t black pepper
1 t cayenne pepper

Instructions:
1) Start soaking chips and preheat grill on high. After 15 minutes of soaking chips, add to grill by what ever method you use for smoking. A disposable pan is quite adequate.
2) While grill is heating. Mix one recipe of Alabama White BBQ Sauce (HERE) and refrigerate. Then mix rub.
3) Clean chicken removing any excess skin and any solid trim-able fat.
4) Cut breasts in half.
5) Apply rub to all sides of chicken.
6) When grill is smoking, decrease temp to low (about 25%). Oil grids well and place chicken skin side down.
7) Cook for 12-15 minutes. This will be grill dependent. But cook until skin is well browned. Flip and cook until internal temp of at least 165.
8) Remove to chopping board and coat all sides with sauce. Tent for 10 minutes with aluminum foil. Re-coat with sauce and serve the sauce on the side.

I LOVE Alabama White sauce but like you, only grilled with it for two years. We like it that way.

This spring, I took a class from Chris Lilly of Big Bob Gibsons and tasted his smoked chicken. It was amazing, some of the best chicken I have ever had.

It is very good grilled, but some time when you have the extra time, try it on a whole smoked chicken.

The whole chicken... sounds like a plan.

The smoke seemed to add a lot more to chicken quickly then other meats. A blank slate I guess.

I'm going to see what happens with skinless but don't have high hope for the smoke adding like it did here.

I'm learning a lot also (hence the 101).

I try to do a lot of pictures since that is the way I like to see posts on other blogs.

Thanks
