    Default I have taken a true step into manhood!

    Thats right ladies and gentlemen. For the first time ever, it was made my duty to cook barbecue chicken over the grill! Ah it was glorious! The dangers were many, after all, each chicken breast was a different size. The hazards were perilous. The grill has screwed up burners where one side is always way hotter than the other, and yet I persevered! I seasoned each piece with garlic and onion powder, as well as seasoned salt. I put them all on the grill, carefully arranged so each piece would finish at roughly the same time. I timed my flips of chicken, then, when I judged them ready, I tested the internal temp, 165! Now it was time, time for the sauce! Sweet baby rays was generously applied, then, when it had a few minutes to cook, flipped and applied again! Finally it was finished. All the pieces were removed and placed on a platter.

    Everyone grabbed the piece of their choice and took the first bite... SUCCESS! The meat was juicy and tender, perfectly cooked inside and out. Just enough blackening to prove it was grilled, without giving the diners a mouth full of char. Cheers were unleashed by all, and the sight of happy eaters filled my vision as my heart swelled with pride. I was victorious on todays field of battle, and now my place amongst the ranks of my fellow manly men is assured and well earned. Rejoice fellow men! For today another joins your ranks! Let us hold our tongs up high and roar with pride as the barbecue battlefield has another soldier reporting for duty! SALUTE!

    Onion powder? Seasoned salt? Those are the trappings of weakness and youthful folly. Real men add spices separately, and use only fresh ingredients!*

    Did I neglect to mention the onion powder and garlic were both created by grating them on my abs first? The seasoned salt is called thus for it has lasted through several battles upon the burning field. (plus it has extra flavors in it, shhhh)

    Huzzah! Congratulations on your ascendence to manhood! My wise and wizardly mouth waters at the thought of your barbarqueing prowess. Although, one wonders how one would grate spices on ones abs, when any true barbarquer of note would be wearing an apron. One with large print saying 'Kiss my broadsword.'

    I actually have a personalized apron with a picture of homer on it at the grill in full chef regalia and the phrase Hail to the Chef written on it. Its pretty nice and has held up for years. That said, I did the grating before I put it on. Gotta prep the food first, you know? As for charcoal, eh, ive used it before for other things, so I graduated from that field of study in the art of grill warfare. A true chef can make any style of grill work for awesome food!

    That linked recipie, oddly enough, I have had something similar to that. I vaguely recall baking chicken with yogurt and flavoring on it. Cant recall what spices but it likely wasnt tandori as most of my family dislikes spicey food.

    Awww, I guess I'll never be a true man then :-(. I can make Oodles of Noodles, and bologna sandwhiches and canned soup, and that is the extent of my cooking ability. I am entirely incapable of cooking/grilling(I've even tried grilling, it was awful, it had to be thrown away).

    Hmm, what you have reached in animal terms is, you are the bachelor, the beta. You are an adult, but not yet strong enough to claim your rightful place as the herd stallion or alpha. The protector and provider of your group. There is no shame in this, not every man is meant to be the Alpha. As syndrome would say, if everyone is an alpha, noone is. I am generous though, you may be my beta. Bring me the ingredients I name, then stand back and watch as I work. Perhaps one day you too will be able to make that step into manliness.

    Ah, the grill. Your next step on the road to manhood will be regrowing your eyebrows after they get blown right off your face by the gas grill.

    Or burnt right off by the campfire flare up. 'Cause meat, stick, fire and you're good to go, too. Bonus points if you can find a forest floor where the soil has high mineral content so your food will be properly seasoned when it falls of the stick. Mmmm, fresh natural ingredients. More bonus points if you can turn the outside into charcoal while keeping the inside raw and bloody.

    Glad your chicken worked out, I detest grilling poultry.

    Although I agree with Crow in that proper grilling should entail charcoal (preferably placed in an oil drum that's been split open lengthways to provide more space for food to be grilled), I do welcome you to the ranks of barbeque chefs.

    As for spices and/or marinades, I tend to like having the wet marinades and then use the marinade as an additional barbeque baste during the coking process. You should definitely try to whisk something together yourself for next time you are in charge of the grill (like any proper man should be ).

    Oh I already do that with pork tenderloins. I chop up some peppers and onions, add oil and balsamic vinegar and marinate the meat. Then when im grilling it, I use the marinade to baste it. THEN, just to make everything even better, I saute the peppers and onions in a pan and serve them on the side. It tastes so damn good added to the slices of pork.

    /time passes

    Sorry guys, thinking about that made me drool a bit. Unfortunately, it turns out that I am all out of tenderloins to grill. Ah well, im cooking a pork shoulder in the crock pot and making a kickass rice dish to go with it tomorrow. The rice is made with apple juice, cranberry juice, apples, raisins, and all sorts of other bits of goodness. Honestly, I do a lot of cooking, its just, for some odd reason, I have never actually grilled chicken before. I have grilled burgers, hot dogs, pork, turkey, fish, shrimp, and things like that, but I have never made barbecued chicken. So I had to share my amusement on the board.

    Proper grilling is made with charcoal and you pour the animal's blood over it, not use BBQ sauce.

    No, seriously, that's how it's done. AND IT'S F*CKING AMAZING.

    I had my first set of barbecue chicken ever marinating in barbecue sauce for quite a while. Then I wiped off most (not all) of the sauce from the exterior of the chicken (so the sugar wouldn't burn before the meat was done), grilled the chicken over charcoal flipping exactly once (the grill marks stay coherent and aligned that way), then brushed more barbecue sauce (not the stuff with the raw chicken juice in it, that got dumped immediately) as the chicken cooled.

    It was awesome. It looked awesome. It tasted awesome. Also, the people who normally grill were totally jealous. I also got the timing right so the chicken wasn't overdone.

    Good times.

    The grill IS awesome, but I have to admit, the slow cooker is rising high into second place for me. You can use it to make SO MUCH AWESOME STUFF! Obviously easy stuff like sauce and chili, but you can also make beef or chicken stew, and I even did slow cooked ribs. You season all the ribs however you like, toss em in the slow cooker, then include a bottle or so of barbecue sauce and let it cook. If you like, you can add cut up potatoes carrots, onions and peppers, etc to the mix for extra filler to the meal if you dont want to make it all separate. The meat literally falls off the bone, it is so tender and juicy its beyond belief. Dont get me wrong, I love breaking out the smoker and taking the time and effort to make a proper set of ribs, but damn me if that slow cooker isnt tasty and a hell of a lot easier. Best part is you can leave it alone most of the day, stirring like 2-3 times over the course of 8 hours of cooking.
