“A Taste of the South” in Pawleys Island

Southern Style Barbeque Chicken

Let’s face it, you still have to eat while searching for homes for sale in Pawleys Island so I just started a brand new page for recipes that are popular in the Lowcountry.  In as much as I will always have my heart in Chicago, here is a salute to the cuisine that surrounds my southern home in Pawleys Island. It’s “finger lickin good” and your family will love it!

Southern BBQ Chicken, apple smoked and served with a Vidalia Peach Chutney and a quarter of a watermelon for dessert

For the Rub

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon fine chopped rosemary

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon fine chopped sage

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

Mix together and reserve

The Peach Chutney

You may substitute mango or apple and use fresh or fresh frozen

Two large or three small fresh peaches peal the skins off

1/2 cup of a peach nectar

2 tablespoons of a good peach preserve

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1/2 cup ketchup

3 table spoons fine chopped Vidalia onion( do not substitute, if not available just omit)

2 teaspoons prepared mustard

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

Place all the ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer and let it cook for about 15 minutes. If necessary add a touch more liquid. Let it cool.

1 whole 5lb chicken split into two halves. Remove the backbone and rub the birds with olive oil.

Ready …. Set …. Go and ….

Start the grill one zone on high and the other on medium if two zones. If you have three zones the two outside zones on high and the middle on low, let it heat for 10 minutes.

2 two large handfuls of  apple wood chips or whatever style you desire. Soak the wood in water for 1 hour. Wrap them in foil and poke holes in the top of the foil with a pencil, about 8 holes. Place the package on the indirect heat on the back of the grill. Turn off the indirect heat burner and lower the other two or 1 zone to medium.

3 Coat the chicken halves generously with the rub. Make sure the chicken is at room temperature for 15 minutes. About the time your grill is heating up.

4 place the chicken on the grill breast side up. Place the chicken on the indirect medium heat and close the lid on the grill. Keep the lid closed as much as possible, the chicken should take about 1 hour or a little longer. Check the internal temperature, it should be 180 degrees in the thick part of the thigh. Rotate the chicken a couple of times for even roasting.

5 Remove the bird and let it rest for at least 10 minutes, serve the chutney with it.

Now it is time to enjoy your meal, relax and prepare for another day in Pawleys Island Real Estate.
