Quicky Chicky!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Last weekend I was bagging up a bunch of raw chicken with various marinades and tossing them into the freezer for quick thaw and cook dinners. For this chicken I went with a Mexican flavored wet marinade: 1 can diced tomatos, 8 cloves garlic, 1/2 onion, fresh cillantro, couple of canned ancho peppers with some of the sauce from the can, 1/4 C. veg. oil, salt, pepper, granulated garlic, chili powder, paprika, juice from 2 fresh limes, and finally some cummin. I was going for big flavor! LOL

 

So flash forward 1 week, thawed out two bags of chicken and tossed onto the WSM loaded with lump and mesquite, WSM was running at about 230° on the lid therm, so the grate was about 250°. You can see the flavors! popcorn.gif

Two hours in, did a quick temp check on a couple of pieces..... not quite there. Also tossed on a couple of pieces of hickory at this point as well. Starting to smell soooooo goood! th_wsmsmile0ly.gif

Let it run for 1/2 hour more at 250° then opened up all the vents and kicked it up to 300° for the last half hour with the skin side down. While the chicken was finishing up I put together a quick salad, some buttermilk mashed taters, and some gravey. Then pulled the chicken to rest for about 15 min. while I got the table set and plates ready.

Well Johnny, you did say quick.  I would have thought you might have made your own chili powder, and I bet you did.

 

I love smoked food, but my old Weber grill still gets used a lot.

 

Thanks for posting this great looking food.

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Johnny, nothing wrong with that hot NM chili powder.  I have used it for years.  I also keep the California chili powder on hand, also store bought.  I often like to use different chilis in the same dish.  One for heat, one or more for a breadth of flavor. I like layers of flavor in some dishes.

 

Thanks for the chili knowledge you pass on to the forum.

 

Good luck and good smoking.
