I've tried APL's quenched and scrubbed (or something) chicken that is cooked directly on the coals then smoked. Man it had a ton of steps, but my mom, dad, and wife said it was the best chicken they had ever eaten. That being said, I had never cooked directly on coals, and I think that has a lot to do with it. I just know that chicken was some of the moistest I have ever had. Gonna try one soon with the KISS method with just salt and pepper and see.
