Help me. My fiance does not eat anything on the bone. I know, horrible, right? Been with her 4 years, and I've been fighting this battle the entire time. It drives me crazy. She'll only eat boneless chicken/pork/beef. Recently, we had a breakthrough though. We went applepicking at a local farm, and there was aconsession stand, cooking up some great BBQ. I didnt get a chance to chat with the guy working the pit, so I cant tell you how he was cooking the food, except to say that he had a hude pile of wood next to his pit, so he wasn't using gas, that's for sure. Anyway, they has two options available, beef ribs, or chicken thighs. We were both starving, so she caved and bought the chicken, hoping to prevail upon me to take the bones out for her. No, I'm not kidding. And no, I didn't do it. I refuse to. Anyway, I told her to grab a fork and knife, and eat what she could.
To my amazement, she actually started eating the damn thing! The chicken was falling right off the bone. Apparently, she has no problem eating it if it comes right off the bone. So my question is, how do I cook it so that it comes right off the bone like that. He wasn't smoking it, because the pit was open, but I have no idea how he accomlished it. It's probably pretty basic for you guys, but my experience with grilling is limited. Hotdogs, hamburgers, and sausages, I'm familiar with, but grilling chicken is new to me.
