Ono Ono Chicken Thighs

edited 2:55AM in Poultry
IngredientsThe Marinade, enough for 2 lbs of chicken parts
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> 
1/2 cup shoyu (soy sauce), I use Kikkoman low sodium version
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbs sherry (I use Japanese sake)
1 Tbs sesame oil
1 Tbs grated ginger root
3 cloves chopped garlicInstructionsPut all ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk around until the sugar dissolves. Taste the marinade and adjust to your liking. I always add more garlic and ginger. (I add ginger until it makes my mouth tingle.
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> 
Marinate the chicken parts overnight in a zip lock bag, or what-ever method you like.
Because of the oil and sugar in the marinade, it is best to use indirect grilling. Get the fire going, and when the temperature stabilizes at about 350 to 400, lay the chicken down, skin side up. No need to baste, just let the BGE do its thing!
Cook until done, internal temperature about 170 degrees.
I have not used any smoking wood chips when making this recipe, there’s tons of flavor from the marinade, and the gentle oak smoke from the Royal Oak lump does not over-power the flavors.
Mahalo, aloha.
