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:

    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?  
    •   5 years at one campground until they went private and wanted 60-70g's per lot with one-just-like-silly-me-o-en fees which were about what we were paying yearly already on top of that!  12 years where we are now with way bigger lots.
    •   Too bad the previous owner didn't know what they were doing. Never, ever use silicone on a rubber camper roof. I learned that the hard way many years ago.....   At least you have a good reason to have to go to the camper this weekend    How long have you been doing the seasonal thing?
    • Thanks for the reply, sounds about like what I expected and I really like the square tubing on the otters compared to clams round cheaper setup. Anyone seen any changes to the new otter lineup for this year? 
    • Last weekend spent some time re-sealing a small seam leak on a trim edge. Found out the owner before us had a leak on the same trim edge spot and left out a screw!! Also washed down the canopy and the ever reoccurring black streaks around the roof edge.   This weekend may go back and clean out and reseal a few other areas the passed own made a mess of sealing with sillycone! Using Butyl rubber this time as silicone can be pulled right off after a few years.
