Chicken

84 posts in this topic

OK so following the meat sales thread I see sales for yard bird more often then not for cut up chickens! personally I am a whole chicken fan. I love chicken cooked pretty much any which way as well as no preference to white or dark meat.

so whats everyone elses thoughts!

I like the idea of grilling whole chickens but Mrs. Cheviot is not a chicken fan. The old, "had too much chicken growing up" song and dance. :( Luckily she's not always around so I can get the rotisserie out and go from there. Leftover city! ;)

Favorite is chicken scallopini. The only part of the chicken I wont eat is the drum sticks, I would probably eat a tomatoe ( and I don't eat tomatoes ) before a drumstick. The other favorite part of the chicken is the liver, heart and gizzards.

Smurfy you can drink the beer and pour in some beef broth with garlic or use a can of Dr. Pepper also instead.  The part of the chicken you see least on add are the wings.  Parts like drumsticks and thighs are on sale the most I think.  I also like a whole fryer but I've been spatchcocking them lately.  I think you see more whole chickens in the fall through spring time span and more parts during the summer.  good luck.

Throwing smoke at a whole bird sitting on a beer can is my fav.  You should try it smurf with the tube you earned. Next is thighs. In other words our chicken has to be bone in for grilling.  Good point cooper, while the ladies eat up the breast meat, the boy and I take care of the rest, including the back.

Nothing like a well-seasoned bird with a beer can up its butt.

I have got to do this some weekend soon, with some of the ideas given below. Since I don't care for beer much, would a rum and coke work ok while grilling? :P

I've had to warn Smurfy twice now after he asked not to drink the beer after the chickens done.  Told him he didn't want people saying he choked the chicken.  :P

Your pushing it with the livers but I eat the hearts and gizzards to but they don't help the cholesterol level. We have a good in plump right hear in town. My parents would but hearts and gizzards by the case. Brown them and kinda make a stroganoff with them except it be on taters!

That cholesterol in the diet thing turned out to be a false alarm. Just like eggs.

I don't really drink beer but have a 6 pac of bottles in the basement to make Beer batter. Do you think a bottle will work up a chicken butt? :lol:

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
