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:

    • Well another game 7 tomorrow night.  Sens have a tough go having to play in Pitt.  Hoping they can pull it off though.  That Karlsson has some wheels!  Even in the 3rd period last night he was fast.     If it is Preds and Pitt it is a toss up, probably go 7 games.  If it is Preds and Sens, I think Preds will take it in 5-6.  
    • I get your drift Rebel but this kid is not going looking for trouble. I think he just wants some ability to respond as a last resort. Sorta the same reason so many of us have carried for  years-  a last ditch option. And he is not going to walk around with it under his raincoat! Ha Ha! I guess I will have to take a look at some of these things just for the heck of it.  To me they have always appeared to be a plastic shooting appliance. I have no use for one and no interest in buying one. There are other options and I certainly do not consider them to be decent hunting weapons,  although I know the younger generation does.
    • I've got $100 that says it's the diaphragm, like I first said. Put yer hand under the carb input are where your line and diaphragm are. Pump that bulb hard. if you get a drop or two of gas leaking out there, you DO have a hole or tiny tear. Pumping it up makes it run better at high speed and /or brings up idle is the telltale sign.
    • Thanks for the input guys.  When the bulb is pumped up it does run fine at high RPM's after a little bit.  I can hear/feel it want to kick in all the way and then it goes fine.  So sometimes it hesitates just a little bit before jumping up to full RPM's.  Of course the boat is on the lift at the cabin so this weekend I will check the size of the lines under the cowl so I can buy some of those along with some other parts.  I will have to decide if I trailer it home or work on it up at the lake when I am there for a week in mid June.  Thanks again for some direction.
    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL
