Erica's No Fail Chicken

This "No Fail" chicken recipe is one of Erica's go-tos! It is so easy, so delicious, and practically no fail! 

This recipe is courtesy of Erica LaBarre

Ingredients:

  • 1 Whole Chicken 
  • Tony Chachere Creole Butter Injection 
  • 1 Lemon 
  • Mediterranean Seasoning

Preparation:

  1. Load up your grill with your favorite Bear Mountain Pellets and set your grill to 350 degrees. 
  2. Remove chicken from fridge and pat the skin with paper towels to get it as dry as possible. 
  3. Inject the breasts and thighs with Tony Chachere Creole Butter Injection.
  4. Slice a lemon in half and squeeze just a little bit on top and place the lemon halves in the cavity of the chicken.
  5. If you have any injection remaining, rub the skin with the remainder. 
  6. Season the chicken with your Mediterranean seasoning. 
  7. Place the chicken on the smoker/grill at 350 degrees and cook until you have reached at least 165 degrees in all spots. Note: some spots will reach a higher internal temperature, but it is important that all parts of the chicken have reached 165 degrees.

 

Alternative Smoke ‘Ems™ Preparation:

  1. On one side of the grill, turn on the burner or fire up your charcoal and place the Smoke ‘Ems packet directly over the heat until it starts smoking.
  2. Place the seasoned chicken on the other side of the grill over low heat. 
  3. Cook the chicken until you have reached at least 165 degrees in all spots. Note: some spots will reach a higher internal temperature, but it is important that all parts of the chicken have reached 165 degrees.
Note: If chicken needs to cook longer than the Smoke 'Ems is producing smoke, remove from the grill with tongs and continue cooking the chicken to 165 degrees.
