There is a reason all BBQ competitions feature thighs in the chicken category. They are the best piece of the chicken. More flavorful and juicy. Watch the video for a super quick "how to" run down.
The Zest Coast Carolina Rub with Savory Blast Seasoning Blend turns out to have the perfect mix of savory and spice to flavor a big of gumbo. And I discovered a much easier way of making the roux for gumbo.
Summer calls for chicken on the grill but sometimes the best laid plans are thwarted by mother nature. Recently I had the smoker/grill all setup up at 375F for two whole chickens that I spatchcocked but thunderstorms rolled in and I was forced to move indoors.
I set out to make a whole chicken as simply as possible. No browning. Nothing but bird, water, and seasonings. You can even just use salt and pepper. This is a great way to make a healthy dose of protein to use in other recipes like chicken and rice, burritos, salads, etc. Total time from fridge to plate is 45 minutes.
