    Drums & Thighs @ The Bear Den


    Mrs Bear wanted some Chicken, but didn’t want any Smoke this time.

    So she got these “Perdue” Drums & Thighs at “Giant” for $0.77 per pound.

    Then I put some Rub on the Thighs (for Bear), and no Rub on the Drums (for Mrs Bear). 
    Then they went into the oven @ 350° for about 45 minutes.
    Then I put Mrs Bear’s BBQ sauce on her Drums, and some Mopar Hemi BBQ sauce on my Thighs, while I flipped them over a few times on my Weber “Q”.

    On the side we had Mrs Bear’s favorite “Peas”, and Mashed Taters with Cream of Chicken Soup as Gravy.

    Last but not least, we finished another small loaf of Blueberry Zucchini Bread for dessert. I got my favorite end piece!!


    Thanks for stopping by,

    Bear






    Drums & Thighs ready for Oven. Rub on my Thighs—Just Salt & Pepper on Mrs Bear’s Drums:





    After 45 minutes in the oven @ 350°, they went on the Weber “Q”, with some BBQ Sauce to be seared on them:





    Just about ready to remove from Grill:





    “Not Yet Fellahs!!”——These guys don’t give up—They like to keep a close eye on me!!!
    Across the field & down the hill—Zoomed in as far as my little camera would shoot:





    In the house we go:





    Bear’s first helping—Chicken Thigh, Mashed Taters with Cream of Chicken Soup as Gravy, and Peas:





    And I get the last piece of Blueberry Zucchini Bread (Cake) for Dessert:





    And a Little Hummer landed on the back of a chair to say Hi, on the back deck, while we were eating:

    Who invited the buzzards?

    The hummingbird was nice.

    And the yard bird made me hungry!

    Good job, Mr. Bear.

    That chicken came out great Bear!  I can relate to the Missus not wanting smoked food.  [​IMG]   I like that oven/grill method for taming the smoke flavor.  [​IMG]
