Bourbon-Butter Barbecued Bird

Whole fryer chickens were on sale for $.59 / pound yesterday, so of course i had to buy 5.
I went ahead and barbecued one last night, and it turned out to be the best bbq'd chicken i've ever had. Plus it lent itself to a really catchy name :) I didn't really measure anything, but here's an approximation of what i used:

Bourbon-Butter Barbecued Bird
  • 1 fryer chicken, 4-5 lbs
  • 1 recipe carnivore's BBQ Rub (or your favorite brand or recipe)
  • 3 tbsp bourbon
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp tabasco
  • a couple handfuls oak wood chips (or your favorite wood)
1. Wash the chicken under cold running water. Dry it with paper towels. Truss it if you like--i don't usually bother. Sprinkle the BBQ rub on all sides of the chicken and rub it in with your fingers. Don't be shy--apply liberally. Set aside.
2. Soak the wood chips & light your grill or smoker. If you're using a gas or charcoal grill, you'll want to set it up for indirect grilling.
3. Make the baste: melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. add the bourbon, vinegar, salt, garlic powder, & tabasco and whisk together until the salt & garlic powder are completely dissolved. Pour the baste into a small bowl and keep in a warm place.
4. Smoke the chicken until done, basting every 30 minutes or so. When the internal temp reaches 180 deg remove and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Cut up & serve.

I think my new years resolution should have been not to read recipes like this before cooking dinner, now I don't feel like what I was going to have

Seriously sounds delicious, wouldn't be the same but I'll have to do this in the oven due to no smoking or grilling (barbecuing) facilities. Any ideas how I could get a smokier flavour?

hey kyles,
it will be great in the oven too--for the smoky flavor add a little liquid smoke to the baste. 8)

Thanks carnivore, I shall go a-hunting, it appears it's not widely available here, but my specialist deli might have it, if not I found a supplier on the net.

Thanks! I'll try it next weekend!
