    The answer to the question is NO it isn't ...but first there's nothing on this chicken quarter. There was no oil, no mayonaise, no special sauce or no seasoning/salt and it was tap on it sounding crispy.

    I had left one of those bags of chicken quarters in the crisper of the fridge and forgot about it till it was a week or so after it's expiration. I used to throw out chicken like that but I forgot that dogs can still eat. I usually mix up some chicken with the old pooches food but didn't have much to put in it this morning and he wouldn't eat. [​IMG] That's why I broke out these expired quarters I had frozen just for the dogs.... free fuel for the 007 so it's getting grilled.


    Back to the chicken skin..Yea crispy as all get out, just flip skin side down for a while and the fats will render and turn crisp. For all those that grill try using something that will give you more distance between your charcoal fire then the skin can spend more time facing the direct heat with no black burning. Anyways that's the tip of the day!


    Oh the hush puppies were for me! [​IMG] Nice and crisp but moist inside. Yum!

    I would have still ate that chicken if it smelled good from the bag.

    It did but still feel funny about it.
    No, the bag is sealed so no odor but being a week after the date on the bag is all for the pooches...cheap enough meat

    I debunked this years ago. All you need is heat to crisp chicken skin. There are those stubborn smokers though that need to go lower temp. That's where the witch craft comes in to aid their chicken to have decent skin.

    Some say high temp isn't smoking, but that's bull. If smoke is hitting the meat you are smoking! Long live the high temp smokers!

    Higher heat is good but being fair I could cook @ 250 over a fire and the infra red searing energy does wonders to crisp.  Now that said Case the people that try 250* w/o good infra red or indirect...oh well, better break out the voodoo!
