Buttermilk BBQ Chicken w/Q-view

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

This past Saturday evening a few friends were going to be hanging out, invited me over and I said that I'd bring along a load of barbecue chicken.

DSC00516.JPGDSC00517.JPGAbout 45 min. before saucing


DSC00522.JPGChicken in the dark...sorry guys and gals thought about driving a tractor over for lighting this is the best I could do with one of the pickups. Ready to sauce twice, 40 min. before finish.



Done at 4 hrs. 40 min.




I marinated these 24 hrs. in advance using a "Cornell Chicken" style marinade incorporating the use of buttermilk and Dreisbach's Garlic Caper Dressing & Marinade in addition. I reserved some of the liquid to baste with a couple times while cooking. I used olive wood to smoke with for this particular set. For the saucing, I used equal amounts Russ & Franks Sassy and Grumpy's Black Label barbecue sauces.


For most the cook I was at 230 deg. and brought the temp. up to over 300 for a short while a little over an hour in to crisp it up. This was some very good chicken, had a excellent flavor and was both tender and moist.

Looks like a winner. Next time leg quarters are on sale I may have to try that. The best fried chicken is usually soaked in buttermilk. Should be good for BBQ too.
