Step by step

Step 1: Preparation

AllBrine Preparation:

Dissolve 100 grams of AllBrine No.1 per liter of hot water.Allow to cool to refrigerator temperature (min. 7˚C).

Chicken Preparation:

Submerge the chicken in the refrigerator for 3 to 12 hours in the AllBrine. Then rinse under the cold tap and pat dry with kitchen paper. Rub with the BBQ Rub.

Step 2: Barbecuing

Fire the barbecue as steadily as possible at 110 to 120˚C.

Add smoking wood and slowly barbecue the chicken in a closed grill until a core temperature of 74˚C. Remove the chicken from the barbecue and let rest for at least 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, fire up the barbecue for grilling. Grill the chicken for a nice color and crispy crust.

Step 3: Serve

Cut the chicken into pieces and serve it Alabama style with our Alabama Style White Sauce. Enjoy!
