Huli Huli Chicken (Well, my version, anyway...)

We had a hankering for chicken yesterday. Decided to try Huli Huli Chicken.  Basha's had chicken parts on sale for $.88/lb so I loaded up on thighs, legs and breasts. About 10 lbs worth.  Used the recipe below:

Marinade: (I tripled this, saving aside a third for glazing during the cook)

     1/3 cup ketchup
     1/3 cup soy sauce
     1/4 cup brown sugar
     1/4 cup honey
     1/4 cup sherry
     1-2 Tbsp. sesame oil
     1-2-more pieces ginger root, crushed
     3 cloves garlic, crushed
     Worchestershire sauce to taste
     Sriracha or Asian chili paste (or red pepper flakes) to taste
     Squeeze a lemon in if you've got one

I substituted chinese rice wine for the sherry, and added half a can of frozen pineapple concentrate.

Marinated the chicked for about 6 hours.

Set up two Weber kettles for indirect, using the firebrick method, with a water-filled drip pan in each.  Smoke roasted the chicken for about 40 minutes at 375 degrees, then moved the pieces directly over the hot coals for another 7-8 minutes, glazing the chicken with the remaining (safe) marinade.

My wife is a white meat girl and the piece she had was so juicy you could have wrung it out like a sponge.  I stuck to the legs and thighs!  Wow! What a treat!  Served the chicken with a small green salad, and had peanut butter cookies for dessert.

Well, if Crash likes it, I'm happy.  He's over there.

Crash, see any of the guys cooking Huli-huli for fundraisers yet?  They like to hang out at the Safeways-Longs parking lot, at the base of the Pali, on Vineyard.  (If my memory still serves me.)

Sterling, that looks simply amazing!  I'll bet the doglets were going crazy, while it cooked.

Currently cooking with a newly built UDS,(thanks to Skouson, my brother) which is my current best smoker.  I've also got a Weber Performer, also from Sterling.  My brothers think I'm CRAZY.  (Strangely, they're right.)

Every weekend.....literally every weekend. 

There's also a local HS sports team that digs a huge Imu for anything that folks want to cook for Turkey Day.  We'll be trying it out this year.
