Smoked chicken thighs with Dimples BBQ Sauce

Wednesday, 16 November 2011 22:36 by nico
Here’s the recipe of the smoked chicken thighs I cooked  for the Dimples BBQ Sauce review on BBQ Sauce Reviews. The original recipe comes from the cookbook Weber’s Way to Grill (“La Bible du barbecue Weber” in French) by Jamie Purviance but I used Dimples instead of the homemade sauce of the recipe. Ingredients for 2 persons: 2 chicken thighs split in two (drumstick and upper thigh) Dimples BBQ Sauce 4 medium chunks of wood (I used oak and beech) For the rub: 2 teaspoons kosher salt 4 teaspoons paprika 4 teaspoons Santa Maria BBQ & Grill Mesquite Procedure: Prepare the rub by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl, rub the chicken drumstick and thighs and let them come to room temperature for 20 minutes while you start the grill for direct and indirect grilling at medium heat (around 200 °C). Put the wood chunks in a bowl of water for 20 minutes. Put the meat on the grill (direct grilling with the upper lid closed) for 8 minutes and turn them over from time to time. Move the meat on the cooking grate for an indirect grilling during 20 minutes (upper lid closed) and put the wood chunks on hot coals. Baste the meat with Dimples BBQ Sauce, continue the indirect grilling for 10 minutes and turn the meat over from times to times. Serve with some more sauce !   Our cat went completely crazy when she smelled the smoked chicken ! She ate all the leftovers and, as you can see, she put sauce all over.

Santa Maria BBQ & Grill Mesquite

Monday, 10 October 2011 20:58 by nico
I’m launching a new category of articles on the site: rub and BBQ spice reviews, and here’s the first of the series. Santa Maria has recently launched a new range of spice mills with interesting flavours like Lime Pepper, Chicken & Steak and BBQ & Grill Mesquite. This rub is composed of white pepper, mesquite-smoked chipotle, onion, garlic, green and red bell pepper, mustard seeds and Mediterranean salt. It’s really nice to see all those big chunks inside the mill ! And it smells gooooood ! The blend of onion, garlic and smoked chipotle is totally mouthwatering. I tried it on chicken together with paprika and olive oil and it gave a great smokey and slightly spicy taste to it. It’s also great as a seasoning for various food: from ground beef to vegetables and eggs. You can find the rub at Delhaize supermarkets (around 2.50€)
