I'm not a big mayo fan, but I don't like slaw that is just vinegar and sugar. I do, however, like a fair amount of sugar.

 

Note that I don't use any salt. It draws out too much moisture and makes the slaw too mushy for my tastes. Instead, I add it just before I eat it.

 

This recipe is scaled for two people.

 

John's Cole Slaw

 

½     Head cabbage shredded

1      small carrot, shredded

1      small green onion, sliced thin

2-3  tablespoons sugar

2-3  tablespoons cider vinegar

1      tablespoons mayonnaise

1½   teaspoon yellow mustard

¼     teaspoon celery salt

        salt & pepper to taste (don't add salt until serving)


​Sounds good.    Gonna have to try this.

Wow, happy anniversary to you and you in laws. Can't wait to see the pics from this cook. If you are going to mix it up and not go traditional for the pulled chicken, how about @SQWIB's philly style! I can't get enough of it.

Happy Anniversary Case.  How long?

 

And to you and Miss Judy too Al.  51 years--that's really impressive!!! 

 

Miss Linda and I will be celebrating 12 years on Oct 1.  Good Lord.  That means I'd have to live to be 107 to catch up to you and Miss Judy, Al.  Somehow I just don't see that happening.  :biggrin:

How about the recipes I am considering for the chicken

 

1. Roadside chicken:


1 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup veg oil
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
1 TBS Sea or Kosher salt
1 TBS white sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp celery salt

 

This yield enough for 2-3 pounds of chicken

Blend everything together, and marinate 2-4 hours. You will need this mixture for basting while cooking.

I'd suggest making a fresh batch and not to use the mix that you used to marinate the chicken in.

 

2. White BBQ Chicken

 

1 1/2 cup mayo

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1 garlic clove minced

1 tbs coarse ground pepper

1 tbs spicy brown mustard

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

2 tsp horseradish

 

This yield enough for 2-3 pounds of chicken
 

Blend well Marinate chicken 2-4 hours. apply sauce to chicken while grilling.

I'm digging the sound of that white BBQ chicken!

 

50 years?  My inlaws and grandparents did it, but for me to get there I'll have to live for another 35 years!  Not sure she could handle me that long...

3 cups mayonnaise
1 tablespoon celery seed
1/4 cup capers
1 1/2 tablespoons garlic, finely chopped
1 head Napa cabbage, shredded
1 head Savoy cabbage, shredded

I'm going to prepare a batch of each flavor and serve it to the in-laws. My luck they will split on which one they like better and the whole show will be off! :ROTF

Father-in-law pull the beto. Add and pulled pork is off the table!!!

He wants Tri Tip! So pulled chicken and Tri tip it will be!!! I will cook the trip the day of and chicken the day before. Tri tip will get sliced and into chafing pan for serving. Pulled chicken will also be in chafing pan.

Now I have to decide how to cook the Tri tip. Feeling the 18" WSM may be the star of this show!

Okay the day is approaching rapidly!

All the meat is ordered and I just made a mega batch of the roadside marinade for the chicken.

The Tri tip will be marinated in Worcestershire. SPOG for the seasoning. 50/50 Kiawe-cherry for the smoke.



I may need more marinade but I'll start with this. I will be making a separate batch just for basting while cooking.

Well I have the 40 pounds of Roadside chicken done!

Now on to the Tri tip! I was going to cook it tomorrow (day if the event). But I have decided to do it tonight. I've decided to use the GOSM and the AmazeN tube with cherry.

Was only 99 degrees today. Gonna let it cool off a bit then get these the Tri tip into the smoke!

Mike everything turned out great. I didn't get any final photos. Only ended up with a half pan of chicken and less than a half pan of Tri tip left over.
