I practiced my BBQ chicken recipe last weekend – getting ready for some up-coming KCBS contests – and I recorded the entire process.
I tried out a few new rubs and sauces and just tweaked the times and the recipes.
The Smoking Guns rub I used at the end ended up being just a little too hot. You want a kick, but you have to consider the judges that might be at your table… so I would use a different rub at the end or not use so much next time. Other than that, I was very happy with the results I got.
Last year at the Variety Club BBQ Cook-Off I took 2nd place in chicken, and this year I hope to get back in the top 5. We will find out this Saturday.
