Tips To Grill Perfect Barbecue Chicken

If you love the taste of the barbecue grilled chicken that you are served at catering events, then you should know that you can create the same type of meat at home like what is cooked by the professionals. However, you will need a few tips and tricks to cook the chicken correctly to get the taste, texture, and appearance right. Get The Skin Crispy The crispy, golden, and crunchy skin that sits on the exterior of professionally cooked barbecue chicken is one of the best features of the meat. However, it can be difficult to get the crispy exterior that you want without ending up with either an undercooked or overcooked center. You can get a crispy skin easily though, by grilling the chicken under a brick. To use this technique, you will need to start with a very clean grill since you will be forcing the chicken into the grates. Remove the grates from the grill and use a metal coil brush or a crumpled piece of aluminum to scrape the front and back of the grates. Do not use a wire brush or the bristles may break off, end up in your chicken, and cause a potentially serious health issue. Once some of the grease is removed, use a handheld steamer along the grates to help pull up debris, scrape again, and use a wet cloth to wipe the debris away. Once the grates are clean and you are ready to cook, start the grill. Turn the gas on high, shut the cover, and let the grill heat up for 10 to 15 minutes. While you wait, cover a brick with a piece of tin foil. You will want to use a new brick to grill with. A standard king sized brick that is about four pounds is perfect for a full or half chicken, and a thin king brick that is a little over one pound is right for chicken breasts and chicken wings.  Turn your grill down to medium heat once it heats up and cover the outside of your chicken with butter or olive oil. Use grilling tongs to set your chicken on the grill. Place it between the lit burners so it will receive indirect heat. Place the foil-lined brick on top of the chicken. Allow the chicken to cook on one side for about 10 or 15 minutes. Use the tongs to remove the brick, flip the meat over, and replace the brick. Allow the other side of the chicken to cook for 10 or 15 minutes. Afterwards, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the chicken to make sure it is at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit so the meat is safe to consume. Add Barbecue Sauce Late  Whether you decide to use the brick method to create chicken with a crispy skin or not, you should make sure that you add your barbecue sauce to the meat during the last stage of the grilling process. If you do not do this, then the water in the sauce will stop the skin or exterior of the chicken from browning and becoming crispy. Also, most barbecue sauces contain sugar that will burn when exposed to heat for too long, To prevent this and to also create a glaze on the outside of the meat, wait until the chicken is about 5 minutes from being fully cooked.

The Five Smallest Frymaster Parts That Can Cause The Biggest Problems

Posted by on Mar 12, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Frying up some great foods is never as simple as it sounds. When running a busy restaurant, the fryer is needed on a daily basis. One malfunction can cause a lot of problems and with so many parts, it may be hard to determine the exact issue. As you troubleshoot your fryer, consider five of the smallest parts found in the machine. These parts can cause big problems, including the functioning of your fryer as a whole. When you order Frymaster parts from places like K & D Factory Service Inc, the following five parts are some of the smallest you will find. O-Rings The filter pan is an essential part of any deep fryer. When the part malfunctions, it can be a big problem or a problem as small as the O-Ring. The O-Ring is a small plastic or metal ring used to connect the drainage pipe to the filter pan base. Through extended use, this ring can wear down or even fall off. Luckily, when you need to replace the O-ring, the process is easy to complete. The O-Ring is usually sold in a package of multiple rings. This is because many other parts of the fryer use an O-Ring. It is typically used for any pipe connections and will help seal metal on metal contact areas. When you order the O-Ring, it’s a good idea to save the spares so you can make quick repairs when a problem occurs. Fryer Relays A lot of electronics are used to keep a fryer operational. To help control and separate different components, your fryer operates on a variety of relays. These small electronic switches help control different elements of the fryer. This includes the ability to raise temperatures, set timers, and operate the LCD screen power. When a relay fails, you will likely lose a function of your fryer. The replacement relays that are needed come in a variety of volts and sizes. An electronic board built into the fryer features all of these relays. Follow the error diagnostic codes on your fryer to determine what replacement relay is needed. Sound Devices One part that you can easily take for granted on your fryer is a high output sound device. These devices are responsible for the beeps, alarms, and audible alerts that go off while the fryer is in use. A fryer sound device may create a lot of noise, but it’s no bigger than a half dollar. When the sound device malfunctions, it can cause items to burn when timer indicators do not go off. The replacement of the sound device is a simple process that only requires the attachment of a few cables. This replacement part has multiple options, too. For example, you can choose different sound tones or select a device that features louder sounds. Flip Switches Grease, oil, and other food elements can cause problems for some of your deep fryer controls. This is especially true for flip switches that power on the fryer. When a flip switch gets clogged or jammed, it can prevent your fryer from turning on. The smallest piece of debris can cause a jam on this tiny part. When you upgrade your flip switch, you can choose from a lighted or unlighted switch. A lighted switch will illuminate the power...
