    Greetings War Room Sherbros,

    Welcome to the next installment of the Presidential sticky-threads. This time around imagine we all got together for a BBQ. What food or drink would you bring? At least one dish or beverage is required to attend. But don't just tell us. Share your recipe, and pictures if possible. In addition, would you bring anything non-food related?

    I'll add my contribution in a post below.

    If you decide to try out someone else's recipe then please report back how it went.

    Cheers,

    Cubo

    PS. Due to unforeseen time constraints, the remaining threads will be up for one week instead of two.


    ***This is an ongoing series of sticky-threads that will take on various topics in varying ways. If you're interested in leading a discussion on something please take a look at this thread and then send me a PM with your ideas.

    Smoked whole chicken with Alabama white sauce

    Chicken:
    • Brine it for a couple hours (salt, pepper, brown sugar)
    • Spatchcock (i.e. remove the backbone), then remove legs and wings
    • Add dry-rub (whatever you like but I used some spicy Spanish stuff)
    • Smoke on 225F for 3 hours
    • Spray every half hour with mix of water, apple-cider vinegar, salt
    • Increase heat to 425F to crisp the skin
    • Remove wings from the smoker after about 15 minutes (or skin looks good)
    • Remove legs from the smoker after about another 15 minutes (or skin looks good)
    • Remove the breast portion from the smoker after about another 15 minutes (or skin looks good)

    Here's the breast from the one I did yesterday. Might have gone a hair long, but tasted great! Juicy and smoky.

    White Sauce:

    • 1 cup mayo
    • 1/4 cup apple-cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
    • 3 teaspoons cream style horseradish
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

    Instructions:
    1. In a medium bowl, whisk all of the ingredients together until smooth. Transfer to a jar with a tight lid and refrigerate until ready to use, up to 1 week. Brush on chicken while grilling.

    I didn't brush it on while grilling. Instead the sauce was used to coat the chicken upon being removed from the smoker. This was done in a gallon-size Ziploc bag. Next time I might coat some of the parts while they cook and see if it makes much difference.

    Here's the legs after being coated in the sauce. Best damn BBQ chicken I've ever had.

    My "wing-it" Chimichurri:
    1: whole bunch cilantro
    1: whole bunch flat leaf Italian parsley
    1: Whole fresno chili (Chili red)
    +/- 1/2 cup Olive oil (I never measure anything, derp!)
    1/4 cup +/- red wine vinegar (never balsamic)
    1: Whole clove elephant garlic
    1: hand full green onion tops (about 3)
    2: tsp +/- Kosher salt
    1: tsp +/- smoked paprika
    Buzz in food processor, drizzle with Olive oil to achieve desired texture. Drizzle in Orange blossom honey until you've found your favorite balance....

    Nothing compliments charred meat better...…..

    Nice. Yeah, measuring is overrated. Have you considered chopping up small bits of red onion and throwing it in after everything else has been in the processor?

    Fuck. I shoulda put corn in the poll. :oops:

    What makes it so good? Their butter perhaps? Used to always buy the Amish butter at the Reading Terminal Market in Philly. Can't say why it was better, it just was.

    The butter is great, but also the soil here is also nice and every ear is consistently good. The kernels just pop in your mouth, you just give them a minute or two on the barbaque, butter, S&P, and attack. Makes you feel like a kid again.

    My birth-state of Iowa is pretty well-known for corn. If it's better than that then...

    Is @Fawlty aware of this? I need to assuage his existence.

    Does it make your skin soft and pliable when you consume the butter coating deep inside you?
