Guide to Grilling Chicken

Easy tips to ensuring a juicy bird


« Prev Next » 2 of 7

Throw any notions you may have of brining being intimidating out the window because the process couldn’t be simpler. Introducing a salt and sugar solution will get you that much closer to ensuring a succulent bird, a protein notorious for getting dried out when cooked. We like this straightforward Epicurious solution that has chicken parts brining, covered and chilled, for 6 hours before hitting the grill and enjoyed with an Asian-style vinaigrette.

    Chisofacto and Zeekers - it's a good idea and on the tech docket; in the meantime there is a link under the photo gallery belt that says "view as one page", but then you still need to hit the print screen to print it out. thanks for the feedback

    Could you elaborate on the indirect and direct cooking method? I start the chicken on direct and move it to indirect and if so, how long?
