Smile Buttermilk Twice Dipped Grilled Fried Chicken

I got this idea after reading off the internet a Buttermilk Twice Dipped Fried Chicken recipe from Bobby Flay. Iíve done my best here to adapt it to be KFC (Kamado Fried Chicken)

First I purchased a Grill Pack of chicken.

Here are the Buttermilk Marinate Ingredients:

2 Cups Butter Milk
1 tsp. Sea Salt
1 tsp. Chili Powder
1 tsp. Chipotle Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
Place ingredient in a bowl and whisk together.

I took one breast and 1 leg quarter and cut the quarter into a thigh and a drum stick.

I then placed the chicken in the buttermilk marinate and mixed it up.

And then placed this in a gallon Ziploc and into the fridge for 6 hours.

While it was marinating I made up a dredge for later.
Dredge Ingredients:

1/2 Cup AP Flour
1/2 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs
1/4 Corn Starch
1 tsp. Sea Salt
1 tsp. Smoked Paprika
1 tsp. Cumin
1/2 tsp. Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. Chipotle Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. Onion Powder
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
I light the kamado and set it up for direct / in-direct cooking and let it get up to 350.

After 6 hours I removed the chicken from the marinate, drained in a colander and patted dry.

I then dredged each piece in the dry ingredients

And then in the buttermilk dip

And then in the dry ingredients again.

Placed on the kamado on the upper rack on the direct side .

Here it is after 10 minutes.

And flip

After another 10 minutes I switched it other to the indirect side and let it go another 10 minutes.

This breast and thigh were very large so I had to cook them and additional 10 minutes to get they to the correct I.T.ís.

Not a failure but not a complete success either. As you can see some of the coating dropped off. Moving these pieces around with tongs is not good. The coating on the drumstick almost completely fell off. Next time Iíll place them on the indirect side and just leave them there.

The skin that didnít fall off was nice and crisp and had a very nice and somewhat spicy flavor. The chicken under the skin was fantastic. It was moist and flavorful.

If I can keep the coating on it this is the closest Iíve come to a real buttermilk fried chicken on the grill.

Iíll keep experimenting and see if I can prefect this method.
