A Friendly Barbecue Chicken Reminder

I saw some almost completely black barbecue chicken recently, which is such a shame, since it's so easily avoided. This happens when people brush on their usually sweet bbq sauce too early, which quickly burns as soon as it's turned towards the hot coals. 

Some believe the solution is only brushing on the sauce during the last few minutes, but that doesn't allow enough time for the flavors to penetrate and pick up the desired smokiness. There has to be a better way!! There is, keep reading.

The video below shows my preferred method for having your barbecue chicken and being able to eat it too. If there's a time of the year to tighten up your chicken barbecuing game, it's right now. To read the full post, and get the ingredients, click here. Enjoy!

Does the skin get crispy when you do this or does it keep that chewy/rubbery texture that some cooked chicken has?

Not crispy, but not rubbery either.

Well, i think the barbecue is going to be crispy as long as you put on the sauce, i suggest some great oyster sauce.

I made this last night...not changing the recipe at all. It was delicious! My husband said it was the best barbecue chicken he's ever eaten.. (even better than Tony Romas). Thanks for another winner....
