Default Smoked chicken in a butter bath

I saw some pics from a competition about bathing chicken in butter while it sits in the smoker. Seems simple enough. Why haven’t I tried this?

5 pounds of wings, Q-salt, and a pound of butter:



After two hours of smoke I sprinkled some blackened seasoning and let it crisp up



Then back in the pan to reabsorb the chicken butter:





I strained what was left in the pan and after using some for dipping, I now have 12 ounces of smoked chicken flavored butter. What would Cowgirl do with it?

This is an extremely effective technique and I'm sure with your ratio of 5# of chicken and 1# of butter turned out a good product, but that is pretty heavy handed with the butter. An alternate is making a slightly strong chicken broth and pour enough in your pan so it's about halfway up the chicken, then top the pieces with a squeeze of Parkay, or a pat of butter. During the cook you have a buttery broth which works well during the braising step.







After you braise them, return the pieces to the smoker to set them up or to glaze.





You will get these results all day long.

I wanted a rich butter taste and if you ever sautéed anything in butter you know that buttery char that I am after I figured the pound only cost me $2.88 so what the hell. I’m surprised I only lost 4 ounces of butter in the entire process though.

I am not sure you had enough butter for the amount of chicken??? I like to use Zatarains Blackened seasoning on a lot of things! Good looking food!

So, you like a little chicken with your butter, hmmm?
And to answer your question about Cowgirl...
No doubt whip up something absolutely amazing that we would all dream about for days.

Is that a good thing to put cooked chicken back in the raw chicken juice pan?

I really seem to struggle with turning out good chicken, so no doubt I'll be trying these methods. THANKS!

I’ve always experienced dried out chicken beforehand, either from me or an establishment. The butter changes everything.
