    make grill baked "fried" chicken. super easy. i use a store bought product. a "shake/bake" product called DIXIE FRY. dust the chicken pieces, set it on a rake to gell up and dry. re-dust..shake off axcess..and let it sit while the coals get hot.
    lay the coals waaaaay over on either side. spray the middle with PAM, and set the chicken down. skin side up. 20 mins later flip it, and close the lid again. 20 mins flip it back skin side up..then close the lid again. i pull it when the thigh pieces reach 175 or so. if you do not have a thermometer, i guess you need to cut into a piece.

    it is so good. crispy, not greasy..smokey...done

    Looks tasty! The only way I have made chicken on my kettle is with a rotisserie. I'll have to give your way a try. :hungry:

    The chicken looks great but I have one question. Why do you cook it to 175? Chicken is done at 165. You could even pull it off the grill at around 155 to 160 and let it rest, it will finish to a perfect 165. Other than that I really like the fried/grilled idea, def. gonna try it. Please don't take this suggestion the wrong way, I'm not trying to be an ass.

    great question!! i typically only use thighs, with the bone. i like to let the dark meat go higher. white meat is perfect at 160. with darkmeat at 160 you will still hit the occasional pink stuff. the darkmeat is more moist, so it can take the beating better. when it gets up near 165 to 175, things start happening very fast. get ready to move them off. hehe.

    + the pieces are relatively small, so the carry-over heat is minimum. and i get the skin super crispy, so i dont tent with foil. i dont want any steam to sog the skin.

    hope this helps?

    The thigh is still pink at 165. Safe to eat yes, but freaks a lot of people out. Dark meat loses it's pinkness and bloody juices at about 170.
