It’s warm enough to cook, so we fired up the Yoder Smoker to do a quick and easy Smokin’ Elvises Fire Kissed Chicken. This quick and easy recipe uses our Smokin’ Elvises BBQ Rub and All Purpose Seasoning to give it a little kick.
You will need:
· ½ of a whole chicken (or a whole chicken spatchcock)
· 3 tablespoons of bacon grease
· 1 lime
· Smokin’ Elvises BBQ Rub and All Purpose Seasoning
Get your smoker started and get a good coal base in the firebox for grilling.
Next, take your ½ chicken and rub it all over with the bacon grease. If the grease is slightly chilled it will stick to the chicken better. Once that is done, liberally apply the Smokin’ Elvises BBQ Rub on both sides of the chicken.
When the fire is ready place the chicken bone side down on the hottest part of the cooking grate directly over the fire. Be sure to watch the chicken the whole time. It will char quickly, about 3-5 minutes if the fire is really hot.
Once the bone side of the chicken has a good dark color, not burned, but close, place the chicken in the smoke chamber of your cooker (bone side down again) and squeeze the lime all over the chicken. Bring the smoke chamber up to 350F and cook about 30 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165F.
Remove the chicken from the smoker, wrap it with foil and let it rest for at least 10 minutes.
Slice and serve with some roasted potatoes and you have BBQ fit for The King!
