Something so simple, yet so delicious

Went the easy route yesterday and soaked chicken breasts in olive oil at room temp for an hour. Added Rudy's Rob on half and Fiesta Spices Chicken Rub on the others. Added two mesquite chunks to my fire. Clear smoke... put them on for 50 minutes at 375 indirect. When internal temp cleared 160, I added HEB's Raspberry Chipotle marinade to half and capped it. 10 minutes later, pulled them off. Incredible! I can't wear white t-shirts when I eat food from the Egg anymore. Juices keep dripping on them. My wife is convinced I need to take eating lessons. It wasn't elaborate (those will come later), but this grill makes the ordinary extraordinary. On a gasser, these would've been tough on the outside. Not on my Egg.

    Excellent.  I consider chicken breasts the best proof that the Egg does cook different.

  • The sous vide guys have been talking about how good a boneless, skinless breast turns out with SV.  I am still without SV so I hot tub nearly everything.  I have hot tubbed chicken breasts twice this week and they are fabulous.  Tubbed them in the kitchen sink in 120 degree water (according to the trusty thermapen) for 45-55 minutes.  Did a lower temp sear, probably 450-500 degrees til an internal temp of 160 and delicious.  Actually I overcooked one, it got to almost 185, thought I ruined it but still moist and tasty.
