SoFlaQuer posted a recipe for some finishing sauce I believe in the pork section that is simple and is to die for. If you make pulled chicken/pork often try this out it is excellent!

Re: pulled chicken

i like mustard based on my pork and chicken, im not a big fan of the vinegar based

but.... if i am grilling chicken i will use a vinegar mop/baste
and put ketchup based sauce on to finish it off :D

I like the mustard based sauces as well. Man oh man, crazyhorse...that meat looks good! And I like the idea of pulled chicken sandwiches. I think I am going to try that this weekend for Father's Day, along with the leg quarters and breasts. I got about 20-30 people coming over this Saturday!

Ok, now feeling a little inspired. I'm going to use a bourbon marinade, and smoke the breasts... can't wait to eat now...

Bourbon Marinade (so good on beef!)
1- 5oz bottle soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar---packed
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup bourbon
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 cup water

Hey Jay,

I have a sauce a lot like that.

I drink the 1/4 cup bourbon, throw the water over my left shoulder and then marinade the meat in the soy, brown sugar, lemon juice and worcestershire sauce :shock: ! Is that how you do it in MD? :?:

:-) Actually, in MD, we put the bourbon and everything in the marinade, down a beer while the marinade works its magic, then for the water pan in the smoker, drink a beer and pour some more water in the pan. ;-) To make sure things are going well, we also drink a beer every few minutes or so to keep the proper perspective.

that's a lot like we do it in Louisiana. I would give you a smiley face here, but since I started using imageshack to post pictures I can't use the emoticans. Thats why I do :D.

I got my smiley faces back 8) HOORAY!!!

My wife didn't think she'd like the mustard sauce, so went primarily with the bourbon sauce, but used some mustard on the side. She loved it!!! Crazyhorse's mustard sauce was a winner! The chicken itself turned out decent. Boneless breasts didn't get too tender, so had to pull more than like with a shoulder. It was great stuff though. That hickory smelled so good and now my house smells good. :-) Thanks!

Re: pulled chicken

try leg quarters or thighs
post #16 of 19
Thanks. I figured that'd be a more tender meat... it's all good anyway!

Re: pulled chicken


If that mustard sauce is a bit too vinegary..try substituting apple cider vinegar for the white vinegar...then adding a couple tablespoons of butter right at the end of the simmer mellows out the sauce..

I've changed the mind of many Northern Folk with my Georgia/Carolina Mustard sauce....nothing better on chicken or pork.

thanks for the brine tip. I'll give that a shot.

Re: pulled chicken


You know, I felt the same way. I then made some for my daughter. When I started the cook process of the sauce I smelled the aroma. Now I use it quite heavily.

Take care,
