Howdy! The chicken was pretty dang good. A tad bit salty, which could be attributed to the poultry magic seasoning?? Or the soy sauce I brushed on at the end) JJs rub doesn't have much salt in it....maybe I will stick with 1 teaspoon of JJs rub, and reduce the poultry magic by 1/2 next time.[p]Anyway, the buttermilk seems to be a great base for a marinade. The chicken seems to have a better texture than when using a wine or soy based marinade. Only marinated for about 4 hours, yet the flavor was all the way through the meat. Cooked at 275-300 direct for about an hour, brushing on a mixture of oyster sauce, ketchup and soy sauce at the end.[p]Also made a great egged veggie dish. Sugar snaps, plum tomatoes, mushrooms and vidalia onions. Coated veggies with mixture of sesame oil, olive oil, soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine sugar and pepper. Cooked over very hot fire in grill topper wok. Flipping veggies twice until edges were browned. Wonderful stuff. Sugar snaps crunchy, and a very very sweet flavor throughout balanced nicely by the wood smoke flavor. Almost had a pineapple-like flavor from all of the sweetness in the tomatoes and vidalia onions. Best egged veggies yet.[p]So, when you are looking for something fairly simple:
Buttermilk marinated chicken (with JJs rub, mustard, garlic, poultry magic seasoning, and maybe some oyster sauce) and egged veggies is a good option.[p]Cheers!
