Whole chicken n ribs today!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Costco organic whole chicken, cooked at 250F for 4.50 hours. Last minute ask by the wife so no brine soak the night before but did rub with
Olive oil
Soy sauce
Onion powder
Tad amount of garlic powder
Mixed salt
Paprika

Smells great, looks good and can't wait to dig in.

Now... On to finish up the ribs!

I don't Brine a lot , other than when some one ask for it , too much mess to sit and listen to Trish for an hour about her kitchen and how it was when she left .

 

Other than that , that's a good looking Chicken . Be sure to let us know about the Ribs . Show them off too:icon_exclaim:

 

Have fun and . . .

That chicken looks good!  I'm doing one tomorrow, organic and all that stuff.  It's for the wife, and sugars are off her diet plan, so I'm trying to season it up without a rub.  Your rub seems to be low in sugar, I'll git it a whirl.  

 

Thanks

 

Mike

Chicken is for dinner tonight, keep you posted how it turned out.


The Ribs? Best yet according to the wife! Fell off the bone, no sauce needed.

3 hours on the rib rack @ 250
2 hours wrapped, with ice cubes and Bbq sauce @ 300 (pic attached of one section)
30 minutes @300
Finished product pic attached.

Yummmmm. [/IMG]

Looks great! Nice looking chicken and ribs! Wrapped your ribs with ice cubes? Never heard that one. Looks awesome though.

Okay, I can see that adding ice cubes would lower the temp and allow more time for the ribs to absorb the foiling liquid-i.e. apple juice, beer, etc. Is that the reason for this? Definitely not criticizing, just always open to new techniques. Thanks, David.

Spot on David, at least that's how we are viewing it. Slows down the cooking temp, allowing the juices to absorb. Once unwrapped, I kept the smoker temp at 300F and threw the ribs on for another 30.

Not a scientist but hey.. Try turned out better than our last go around with ribs! (Which, try were good but not as great as these turned out)
