Pulled Smoked Chicken Sandwich

The Pulled Chicken Sandwich

I made this pulled chicken sandwich after work yesterday.

The plan was, put some chicken breasts, seasoned with a spicy rub, on the grill using indirect heat. I used hickory chips for smoke application. I also made some cole slaw for a side dish. I used a catsup-based sauce, but also put some dijon mustard in as well. I used too much mustard, but it still turned out very well.

Let me explain sauce. I really don’t have a thing for sauce, but my family sure does. They believe in the flavor added from the sauce. I think sauce is something to hide the flavor of the meat. However, I’ve come up with some outstanding sauces. This one turned out to be a great complement to the chicken. It it is supposed to be used for ribs. I found out it works well for chicken, turkey and pork.

It worked out well, except I think one of my chicken breasts got a bit dry. When I shredded them, one just felt a little tougher than the rest. Anyway, it seemed to have worked well. If I had wanted to, I could have put a dollop of cole slaw on it to moisten it.  No complaints from the dinner table for sure.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
