Been doing this for awhile now . A good gas grill is way more than convenient . Like anything else , know what it will and won't do .
Pics are " fast forward " , so this is how I started .
Had some nice chicken thighs . Went into Pop's low salt brine over night . Next day , pulled out drained and dried off . Then back in the fridge for a couple hours to dry some more .
Back out of fridge . Mixed some flour and corn starch with salt and pepper .
Start of the coating . You can see the un coated are pretty dry .

So I floured them all , and back in the fridge .

Let the flour soak up any moisture on the chicken .
These were really dry on the surface so I didn't have to re coat .
If they come out of the fridge tacky , I re coat . Makes a nice crust , but these were good with one .

So I cover a sheet pan with non stick foil , and a little cooking spray .

Some foil packet potatoes . I layer in butter and onions , and close up .

Get the grill up to temp . 400 or so and put the tray right over the burner . All burners are on . Burner under taters is turned to low .
Not much oil on the tray to start .

First flip .

The I just keep flipping until it temps , and gets the look it needs .
Cooking in the natural fat at this point .

And lookin pretty good , temps out too .
20191013_181659.jpg
Pull off the tray to stay warm . All burners are off except far right side is on lowest setting .
Put the taters up top . The chicken is not greasy at all .
20191013_181824.jpg 20191013_181826.jpg
Those potatoes are so good . They smell great .
20191013_183937.jpg
Plated up . The asparagus got murdered . Didn't play well with the instant pot , but still good .
20191013_184121.jpg
So that's that , but I also do alot of wings the same way . They come out great , and hard to tell they are not deep fried . These are from older cooks / test runs .

The grub is looking good from under the hood of your grill.

Looks great. I tried using BBQ mat on my kettle one time and the breading got destroyed from all the moisture coming out of the chicken. Did you poke holes in foil?

That looks seriously delicious, Chop. I’ll have to give your method a try since I lack a deep fryer.

I’ll take a plate please. Like!!

Awesome job Chopsaw like the way the chicken is crisp. We do potatoes the same other than we dice ours.

Thank you sir .
Chop, very nice! I would eat them parts and spuds! And I’m in spud land!
I could eat those potatoes everyday . I usually make extra for the next morning breakfast .
Looks good!
Thank you Steve .

So what is the ratio of corn starch to flour. What does the corn starch do?

What did you use for breading ? I used flour with some corn starch and let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so. I use a pig tail hook to flip .
No holes in the foil .

Looks excellent!

I don't use the cornstarch most of the time . Just added some to see if it made it crisper . I just dumped some in the flour .
