howit’s pronounced forgive me if Ipronounced that wrong but this stuff ismagic yeah it’s made out of all types ofcitrus juices and spices and herbs andit makes just about anything you soak itin a thousand times better I’ve beenusing this stuff for several years Idon’t see very many people using it thatI know but trust me you can’t go wrongand on the chicken is just dynamiteso I soaked my chicken overnight I cutit in halfwe’re gonna see what it looks like hereso that’s what it looks like overnightand man if you could smell this i meanwhen you open this lid his smells likethe bomb I mean it is just ridiculousit smells delicious raw so all I did wasI cut my chicken in half straight downthe back and I seasoned that bird upwith another Gloria product and if youdon’t know about this one you really arelosing this is there a dobo all-purposeseasoning this is kind of like a Latinseasoned salt is what I would equate itto but it is very good on just aboutanything it’s fantastic on french friesall types of meats vegetables great onanything you’re grilling so I justseason that bird on both sides and thenI put it in the bowl pour the marinadeover and I chopped up two garlic clovesand mixed everything around I’ll letthat bird soak overnight I would sayeight hours minimum for if you justdon’t have time think anything less thanfour you’re probably wasting your moneyso we’re gonna do this on the grillI’m gonna go top rack indirect heat Igot my coals ready I’m gonna get thatfirst set of coals dumped and we’regonna get these birds this or this birdbird halves we’re gonna get them goingalright so I’ve got my coals in I’ve gotmybird up here on the top rack again I’mdoing indirect HeatI’m going to shoot for about 300 degreesand of course I want to do an internaltemperature on that thigh for about whatmu because his wind just killing me butone thing I forgot to mention was when Imarinated this bird I poked a bunch ofholes in it that way to marinate couldreally seep in again that’s an optionalthing it really works for me and sincewe’re talking about a marinate aleftover it would be a shame to wastethis and so I’m not going to we’re gonnatake this in the house we’re going toboil this marinade we’re gonna add onemore little magic trick to it and we’regonna use this to base this bird allthrough our cooking so let’s go get thatdone and close the lid on this burger[Music]alright so that bird has been on forabout an hour oh well that was cooking Iboiled that marinade for about fiveminutes make sure it was good and safeand I took it off and let

again add a lot of flavor a lot ofcolor on this bird it’s not cooking asfast as I wanted it to it’s a superwindy day here and so I’m battling theelements a little bit but we’ll get itdoneone thing about cooking outside orcooking with live fire barbecue whateveryou want to call it you have to makeadjustments sometimes and even though Igot a really decent sized fire inside mycooker here I would expect that bird tobe a lot further along than it is butagain we got a really good north breezetoday and it’s a little bit of a coldfront down here in Texas so it’s it’splaying games with me but we ain’t gonnalet it beat us so lid back down we’llkeep these birds going alright y’all sothat bird is looking good about ready topull him took me a lot longer to cook itthen I had anticipated but a brutal windtoday coming out of the north and waswreaking havoc with my fire and my pitbut like I said before you know whenyou’re barbecuing or cooking outside youhave to make adjustments and that’s
