Chicken preparation and the cooking process

Chicken – 
Marinade: Adapted by us from a Grey Poupon recipe in their booklet “Meals Made Easy.” We have kicked it up a notch to handle large quantities. 

Place the ingredients listed below into a gallon size Zip Loc bag: 
8 oz Grey Poupon Dijon mustard 
1 C packed light brown sugar 
1 C soy sauce 
Add your chicken, zip the bag, and refrigerate overnight.

Next day, drain excess liquid and season with Happy Holla Rub or your favorite rub.

Smoke chicken at 240* to an internal temperature of 170*. We like to finish off the chicken by grilling the thighs over a higher heat so that the chicken skin gets crisp. (If you do this, pull the thighs off the smoker before the internal temp reaches 170* and then monitor the internal temp on the grill.)

Variation of above recipe: 
8 oz. Grey Poupon Dijon mustard 
24 oz of Italian dressing 
4 T minced garlic 
14 oz of chicken stock 
Can also add: 
8 oz of apple cider vinegar
