Tonight is kind of an experiment. Last night I cleaned up some boneless skinless chicken breasts. Rubbed them with the standard red rub and laid them in a pan with EVOO. I mixed up the standard mayo sauce (I'll post that later) and let that meld in the fridge overnight.

Tonight I fabricated the boats and put a spoon full of the sauce on the bottom of each boat. Laid the girls in the boats and filled the the space with the remaining sauce.

Here's some shots before they landed in the drum. I'll post more if they turn out well (so you'll know what happened if this thread dies!)

OK, this one's a keeper. In honor of our favorite Oki, I over cooked them by a couple of degrees, which you really can't do with Boneless/skinless; very good none the less.

So here's the sauce (sorry for the measurements....it's how I roll):
3 big spatula spoons of mayo
3 large spoons of yellow mustard
2 large spoons of minced garlic
3 large spoons of onion flake
3 splashes of Sesame Seed Oil
2 splashes of cider vinegar
Honey.....no clue how much....1/8 cup maybe?
Handfull of spicy sweet red rub (I use the nude kind....you know what I mean)

Mix well and let meld in the fridge overnight.

Used the same rib rub on the chicken, again leave overnight.

Cooked for about 35-40 minutes (would have liked more for smoke, but that's how it landed)

The results are below. They have a great spicy flavor and the sweet from the sugar (in the rub) and the honey really bring out the flavor of the bird. Will very much do again.

Fantastik lookin spread geek, wonderful on the plate.


I was also wondering about the smoke pena with the liquid surrounding the meat. The only thing I can come up with is possibly a flip midway through as I stir my mac and cheese a few times during the process to invite more smoke into the dish. Just a thought, looks good my man, real good.:thumbs up:

Looks like a killer sauce Josh!

You got my food A.D.D. going. What about glazing smoked or grilled chix with it, or for that matter BBs.. Why not steam a batch of asparagus, pour it over the top and then under the broiler until it starts to bubble?

BTW- what is the 'nude' kind of rub? I hate to seem dense, but I guess I am.

Nice! Something different. And real tasty looking too, the "sauce" sounds good. Certainly worth a try, if I can just find my big spatula spoon. :D :drooling:

Looks like you just fabbed up the boats from HD foil???

Yea, my measurements are never that accurate. Guess I learned that from Grandma.

For the boats, I just double folded some foil and punched them down in some small bowls. Rolled down the edges until everything was even.
