Arrow Hot 'n Fast Mayo Slathered Oakridge Secret Weapon Chicken Experiment

There was some discussion on a recent thread here in Qtalk about the benefits of slathering mayo on chicken before cooking it, which many felt helps render the fat more effectively and helps get the skin nice and crisp.

I did a little research on the subject, and found quite a few converts to this method, so I decided to give it a try myself!

Started out with a 3lb fresh young chicken:



Then proceeded to cut up the chicken in pieces:



Next, I took 1/4 cup of mayo, and added about 1/2 tsp sea salt and some freshly cracked black pepper:



Then, I poured the mixture over the chicken pieces and coated them thoroughly:



I covered the bowl and let the chicken sit for about 2 hours.

After the rest, the chicken got a generous dusting of Oakridge Secret Weapon, one of my absolute favorite rubs for chicken:



Then I fired up the drum with hot briquettes and a couple pieces of oak:





Then put the dark meat on first, with all three intakes fully open:



About 15 mins later:



At that point, I added the breasts, and another 25 minutes everything was done. Here's how it looked right after I pulled the meat from the drum:



And then plated, with some of the Missus' world famous garlic rosemary oven roasted mini-yukon gold taters:





The verdict? It was without question some of the tastiest chicken we've ever eaten. When I cut into a thigh, the juices literally squirted out onto the table! The skin was nice and thin, with just the right amount of crisp to it. We plan on doing this again very soon, this time for guests to see how they like it.

And the taters were awesome too!

I wouldn't say the chicken was smoked in the purest sense of the word - they were more grilled with some smoke for flavor. Drum was running around 300 or so...
