Title: HFC
Post by: Hell Fire Grill on February 28, 2018, 05:59:43 AM
This is my un-fried clonel Sanders clone.


Its the crunchyest damn chicken you ever put in your mouth...a friend of mine in Toronto said he could hear the crunch all the way from pourtland, OR.


You'll have to be careful eating it because you might injure yourself. I almost went to the hoarspital to get stitches in my mouth after dinner one time.


I followed the same basic technique as the other clonel Sanders clones. The only difference is that I removed all the skin and most of the excess fat, then covered them in corn flakes.


This particular batch was made with BSCT but I'v done it with bone-in skinless chicken thighs (BiSCTs) and breast strips too.


Before.

Switched to direct here because my fire was petering out.

BiSCTs.

What I'v been doing is dipping the chix in milk.



Then dredge chix in seasoned flour concoction (thoroughly til its completely dry)

2 cups flour
2 Tsp. cayenne
1 Tbsp. granulated garlic
1 Tbsp. granulated onion
1 Tbsp. Salt

or whatever you like...



Dip the chix in eggs

3 eggs & 2 Tbsp. milk

Whipped/mixed very very well.



Cover with corn flakes.

I break the corn flakes down so they are about 3/8" and smaller. They tend to fall off easy if they're too big.



Cook indirect @ about 425

Last night I HFC'd some drums with the skin on for the first time.

The skin didn't crisp like it would without the corny crunch coat, which I expected, but it was still bite through, with a couple exceptions, when it was finished. Only a couple of the drums had the skin pull a small part of the coating off when I flipp'em or bit'em.

The chix stay tender & juicy on the inside, and dangerously crunchy on the outside...so crunchy you wont be able too see strait while your eating.

@Hell Fire Grill
Thank you for the note
I prepared as per your instructions and chicken came out SO CRISPY
My neighbors told me I was making too much noise!!!!
I made thighs boneless skinless
So made my chicken a bit in the dry side for my liking
Next time I would try bone in and see if that makes it juicier
Also I used a full lit chimney (large) was having heat close to 500F
Is this too high of temp for this cook?
All in all Crispy as hell!!!!
In the pic you see burned ones (close to heat source) I do not have a basket so cannot contain charcoal close together
I have seen some bricks used or maybe some aluminum foil could help reduce this
:)
Share any recommendations so next time is better
Thanks again!!!

Hey @MauroBBQ thanks for trying it and posting the results.

I thought I heard a crunch come from the South!

500 should work but 450 & under I think is best. You need to make the heat as indirect as possible. Next time use any thing you got to hold the charcoal in a pile, directly on the inside of the kettle. I use a charcoal rail but brics might be better, pile the coals so they hold the flipper and grate up off the tabs if you have too. Place all the meat on the grate starting as far from the fire as you can.

I burn them too...sometimes that happens when you play with food & fire. Good thing is the burnt parts peel off easily.

Yours look like the corn flakes stuck pretty good & have good color, there are not alot of flakes on the fire grate. After the eggs concoction sets up you can flip & circulate them around without loosing too much crunch. Usually the coating holds the moisture in quite a bit but at 500 theyre going to cook pretty fast.

@Hell Fire Grill
Yep Crunch from South of the border =]

Next time (oh yes there will be a next time) I will make the slight changes you recommend, lower temp and indirect as possible. I did not flip them during cook.
Yes the flakes were stuck and never coming off. Egg kept them in place.
I did rest the chicken prior to cooking (flakes on) about 15min, maybe that helped.

Que tengas una Buena semana!! (Have a good week)
