Chicken done right!

Has anyone else cooked the large "Butter Ball" chickens? If not, you really ought to give one a try. They are a little expensive at $1.39 pound, but are worth it, especially if cooking in a contest. Lots of breast meat, juicy without lots of the fat.
Split one, trim off the ribs and remove the breast cartlidge (not sure of the spelling there} and lift the skin, rub with oil and then with your favorite rub (under the skin also and underside of breast)a and then either smoke or grill. Wonderful.[p]Keep the smoke clean and the fire hot

    Fireball,
    Albertson's carries them here, sometimes. These are not the ButterBall Turkeys but are really plump chickens.[p]Ray
