  • Place chicken into a large resealable container.
  • Add enough buttermilk to cover the chicken. Add hot sauce, if using.
  • Seal and shake gently to coat the chicken and combine the hot sauce. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Fire up your Vortex. Fill completely with coals. You'll need at least a 22" charcoal grill.
  • Combine all dry ingredients and pour into a pie pan or alternatively, place in a large resealable bag.
  • Working in batches, remove chicken from the buttermilk. Shake off excess and roll in the coating. Alternatively, add the chicken to the bag, seal and shake to coat.
  • Place chicken around the edges of your grill. Cover and cook 30-45 minutes or until the chicken has reached 160 F as measured in several locations.
  • Lightly brush the chicken with the oil and cook another 5 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165 F as measured in several locations.
