    Turn Turn or Flip Flip is the translation so I decided to Spin Spin. Great marinade, bird fit into a gallon Ziplock for the overnight soak and took about 90 minutes for succulent goodness. The breast was so moist I ate that first (unusual for me) with a wing, on which the skin was awesome. A touch of heat, some sweet and a slight char....was delish. 

    3/4 cup soy sauce
    1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
    1/2 cup light honey
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    Tbl EVOO
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    Tbl  catsup
    Tbl  minced fresh ginger
    1 Tbl Chili Garlic Sauce
    Kosher Salt to taste
    Fresh ground Black Pepper
    1 Tbl sesame oil

    disco and bearcarver like this.

    Terrific post, Chef. I am particularly grateful as I have been meaning to try a Huli Huli chicken so you have saved me some research!

    We love Huli Huli Chicken!! Been making it weekly for about 2 months after seeing it on Diners Drive Ins and Dives. I dont have a rotisserie so I do it over Kingsford Competition charcoal with a bird cut into pieces and I flip it about every min or so. Nice crispy skin before slathering with huli huli sauce

    It does get a nice and crispy char and I get to stand and drink beer as it cooks!

    I brine it first with salt, sugar and Lawry's then I rub it with a mix if SPOG and paprika

    This one looks terrific!!!

    I've been experimenting quite a lot with the idea of rotisserie - have it on my Genesis. Made it with a pineapple-garlic glaze, but have to try this one. Sounds wonderful!

    Hmmm, didn't temp this one...the first time I did a whole bird the temps were running about 400 degrees coming out the top. That's a Bud keg with the top cut out and the rotisserie set up was easy enough to drill holes for and mount the hardware. So, the coals set in a Weber charcoal basket (actually sold as a set of 2) on 2 bricks I placed across the bottom. The first time I filled the baskets up full, so to much heat. This time I went halfway full so better, lower temps. It's amazing how hot that air is coming out the top.
