AZRP\'s Halfcocked \"The Chicken\" (Pic Heavy)

Had some whole chickens that needed to be cooked, but wanted to try AZRP's "The Chicken". Figured I would halfcock the chickens and steep them with the sauce in a pyrex dish. Worked great, and "The Chicken" is fantastic. I love spicy, and this hit the spot. We had a brunch on Sunday where I did Fatties stuffed with smoked gouda cheese, SSN686's Bread Roll and some Georgia Boy Hot Sausages. Unfortunately no pics because we had guests arriving early and I didn't want them to think I'm any more "Egg crazy" than they already do. But anyway, last night's cook.

Dredged in flour according to recipe
The girls fired up and ready for "The Chicken"

Just some extra breast heavily rubbed with DP Raging River
I have recently switched to Wicked Good Lump, and these are a couple of the largest pieces in the bag
Last one of the lump
The finished chicken breast, not the prettiest grill marks, but the chicken was good
Now Back to the good stuff
Halfcock's to 160 in breast 180 in thighs
Halfcock's ready to steep in "The Sauce"
Brought sauce to slight boil and covered the chickens. The sauce smells amazing as you are preparing it BTW.
After the 45 minute steep.

Ready to be carved up.
All carved up. Best part about carving them up was the continous licking of the sauce off of my fingers.
Close up of how juicy the chicken was.
The left over sauce was strained and refigerated to marinate some wings in for the weekend.

A big thanks to AZRP for sharing his recipe. You can find it on the Whiz's site under Chicken and Turkey of course, but here's the link.
It was very good and it'll be on my favorites list now.


  • Looks good SC. I wouldnt reuse the sauce, since it has already come in contact with chicken. Cross contamination is not good. Just my 2 cents.
  • I wondered about that, but thought since the chicken was already fully cooked I could refrigerate and reuse. Might just toss it, but man it's some good stuff.
  • I think if you boiled the sauce for 5 minutes after it hit the raw chicken you'd be okay.
    I love Randy's Chicken recipe.Nice job on the birds..

    Glad you enjoyed it, it always amazes me that with everything spicy known to man going into the sauce that it really doesn't come out hot. That leftover sauce is fine to re-use since the chicken was already cooked. -RP

    Do not understand "45 minute steep"?
    Did it just sit in the sauce in the bowl? Did it go back on the grill for 45 min's?

    I have been reading about this recipe for a year and thinking it sounded good. Just decided I'm going to pick up a few items at the store on the way home and try it tonight!
