Yardbird

Broke out the chicken last night.  Six legs, six thighs and 18 wings.  Simple stuff.

Chose your weapon; dry season or marinade.  I used Penzey's BBQ of America's on the thighs/legs and Uncle Dougie's Wing Marinade for the wings.

Indirect heat, with a healthy safe zone (no heat)

I sear the chicken for the first 15-20 minutes.  Turning very frequently.  Do not flinch from duty.  I went inside the house for 45 seconds and a few pieces were charred upon return.  My bad.  

After I crisp up the chicken, I "pile up" in the safe zone, close the grill top and relax for 45 minutes.  Thighs, legs and wings are very forgiving.  You won't dry them out.

(Full disclosure: for the thighs/wings, I also placed them in a foil pan and added  Blues Hog Barbecue Sauce)  

No worries about burning, this is away from the heat.

After a total of about an hour, I begin selectively grilling pieces of the chicken again. Primping and crisping. Needs to look good.  I paint on a little BBQ sauce too at this point- like an artist. Back to being on-point also…no monkeying around.

All in all, about 90 minutes of cooking time.  

The chicken was tasty and this information is Certified Grilladelic.
