Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.
I’m not one to rename other folk’s recipes, so when I came across Daddy’s BBQ chicken I couldn’t call it something else even though it’s not my daddy’s BBQ chicken. If it was though, I’d say “Dad, that’s amazingly great chicken!”. Like any other poultry made on the Char-Broil Big Easy it’s tender, juicy and of course, there’s crispy crazy yummy skin. The marinade is the perfect combination of Worcestershire sauce and steak sauce with just a hint of citrus.
I would make Daddy’s BBQ chicken on my Char-Broil Big Easy again. And again. People might look at it first and expect a fairly simple chicken but that’s not what they’ll get. Packed with flavor it’s a nice change from your standard roasted chicken or chicken that has been covered in a traditional BBQ sauce.
