It's not really my regular smoked fried chicken but just something to give a little bit of a different texture and crunch. A similar version was done in the roti basket but this is on the grate. Normally I'd mix the seasoning with the panko but this time was oil then rub then panko. This was a toasty cook for the first half hour about 550-600* then finished about 400* Go skin side up until the birds oils really bond with the panko then its safe to flip skin side down, I think it was about 140* when i flipped down.

Ended up really juicy with a nice crunch and very tasty. If you can duplicate you'll sure enjoy it!


This is sooo simple but really good especially if you like good crispy skin and lots of flavor.

People tend to struggle with chicken so I post that more is all ...plus it's fun experimenting more with poultry as its pretty forgiving

Ya know I don't know how much of that flavor really makes it back on the bird with a fire vs charcoal...It could just completely burn up but all i know is that is sure tastes good in the end!

Thanks cheez, hope it does inspire people to cook different ways. I know my days of low smoked chicken are over.

I'd like to check out your chicken cooker if you happen to have a pic. You think at those temps with coals that you would get a lot more undesirable char?

Quarters are quickly becoming my favorite thing to cook, especially since they are so cheap to experiment on.

Nope no char, I cook mostly with the skin side up so it's not searing on the cook grate the whole time. I flip around the 120* to 140* range so then the skin can get some direct heat to finish. The cook grate is about 30" above the fire so it won't come in contact with the flames.
