Memphis style 1/2 chicken

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

so i made up a Memphis style dry seasoning  cut a nice chicken in half  did a simple  brine of 50/50  salt sugar  let it marinade for an hour them fired up the smoker. took the 1/2  chicken  out of the brine  patted  it dry then covered with some olive oil, then threw it on the smoker using hickory  smoked it at 275, spritzing the chicken with apple juice  every 15 min  till internal temp was 165.   then took it off the smoker and  seasoned it with the Memphis dry spice blend  came out really tasty juicy  and that lovely hickory flavor  to the meat

yeah no problem i just pulled one off a site after seeing a video on youtube  about rendezvous ribs in Memphis  you just put it on at the end of the cook its more of a seasoning rather then a  rub you put on at the  beginning 


Rendezvous Seasoning Rub

1/2 cup salt

1/4 cup sugar 

1/4 cup ground black pepper
1 Tablespoon granulated garlic powder
1 Tablespoon dried oregano

1 Tablespoon ground celery seed
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 Tablespoon chili powder
