    Legs & Thighs on the “Q”

    On this one I had to go back to the old way of doing these, because Mrs Bear didn’t want them smoked.

    So while I was mowing with my new Toy:

    Mrs Bear put the 2 Legs (Hers) and 3 Thighs (Mine) in a Baking dish with a little butter, and into the oven at 350° for 45 minutes.

    Then I thinned out a little BBQ sauce with some Ketchup & Olive Oil, and swished the chicken parts in that awhile.

    Then onto my Weber “Q” flipping a couple times & applying a little more of my sauce mixture until I got nice grill marks.

    Meanwhile Mrs Bear mashed some taters, and heated up a can of Campbells Chicken Soup for Gravy, and added some Sugar Snap Peas.

    I like the Chicken better smoked, but sometimes we gotta do what we gotta do. 
    It was all plenty good!!

    Onto my Weber “Q”:

    While we’re waiting, after my 6th mowing, my yard is finally looking good again, without the Dandelions:

    Here's the new "Zero-Turn" Toy that did that nice job above:

    Now they’re ready to remove:

    Looks great as usual.  I get the thighs as well as wife does not like them.  I too like the chicken smoked but I have trouble getting the skin just right.  Oh well, just have to keep trying.

    Very nice , Bear . Never a bad Q-view . Nice grill marks , and the sauce mix for the Glaze was tasty sounding.

    I will be doing some Breast this weekend (Trish don't like dark meat) so I'll get a couple of Chickens and Her breast . I have a couple of Brats 

    stashed for me . Me and the Grand Kids will destroy the dark meat and some of the Breast too.  Dang,them Kids can eat .[​IMG]

    Keep your fingers crossed , I'm having camera trouble again. [​IMG]   I'll get my nephew to help me resolve my posting problems.

    Have fun and . . .
  9. Everybody must be in the mood for chicken, doing a roasted chicken in the oven right now, brined it for about 5 hours. Both my smoker and grill don't know what to think, Haven't been using either very much with all this dad gum rain.

    Thanks Justin!!

    We had a lot of rain over the last 11 years. Like always I was mowing every 4 days. Then we had 20 days without rain. I was kicking up dust while mowing for the first time in 11 years. This last time it didn't need mowing for 8 days.

    Had a big rain last week & it's back to normal again. Nice & green & growing fast & thick.

    Thanks Red !!

    Chicken was Great !!

    I can't believe how that mower does Zero turns without having to use Lap bars. Just turn the wheel & the 4 wheel steering does the Job---Amazing!!
