Grilling in the great outdoors

101 delicious reasons to fire up the barbecue

Chicken, turkey, pork and lamb


Grilling chicken
• Grill chicken with or without the skin, but removing it not only cuts the fat to one-fifth of the original but also reduces flare-ups when fat drips into the fire. When barbecuing chicken with skin, you may need to turn it more often to prevent scorching.
• Grill chicken over medium-high heat as follows: bone-in chicken breasts and leg quarters for 45 minutes, bone-in thighs for 20 minutes, boneless breasts for 10 to 12 minutes, and boneless thighs for 12 to 15 minutes.
• Chicken is cooked when the white meat is no longer pink inside and juices run clear when the thickest part of the dark meat is pierced.

Smoke up some flavour
For a smoky touch, soak 6 to 8 cups (1.5 to 2 L) hickory, mesquite, cherry, maple or apple chips in water for 4 hours. (Hickory is well-suited for pork, however, alder will also work well.) For charcoal barbecue, sprinkle one-third of the chips over hot coals. For gas barbecue, place one-third of the chips in foil pie plate set on lava rocks or V-shaped bars. Heat at high heat until chips start to smoke before adding food. Add more soaked chips, one-third at a time, to maintain smoke level.
