    Hickory Smoked Chicken 8th Jun 05 at 1:53 PM
    Hi All,
    Just a quickie, i've done a search but can't seem to find anything.

    Ok, Me and my OH and the kids went camping last week and for the first night we thought we'd have something 'propper' to eat before we lived on beans bacon and egg

    Anyway we went to a local pub and i had Hickory Smoked Chicken' which i've had before and it's lovely.

    The thing is the kids and the OH though it was lovely too and ended up eating half of mine as well as their own dinners

    So i've promised the kids that i'll make it for them the next time they come down to see us (Which is this weeked ) the thing is i don't know how to make it (the sauce, obviously not the chicken , and don't really want to be going out and spending money on a jar of sauce.

    I'm hoping you guys could help me

    This Recipe looks promising, but it doesn't say smoked. Maybe you need to blast it with a blow torch, or something

    Perhaps that's all it is bbq sauce with a smoked flavour :confused:

    Darn it - I saw all those ingredients and thought they were the sauce. Sheesh! Hundreds of sites and they're all either on a restaurant menu or in a jar.

    What sort of sauce is it?

    Smoked chicken...well, you could smoke your own chicken, hickory chips might be hard to get hold of, but there are smoker suppliers who could probably sell you some, alternatively use oak or apple which are much easier to get hold of and very tasty. My OH has done mackerel and cheese in this home made smoker - otherwise Lakeland sells some gadgets for smoking, but then, that's buying stuff again (at least ours is made out of old tomato tins! )

    That would give you a lot of flavour, then you would have to work out cooking and a sauce but you'd have a good basis (and it needn't cost much, and will be there for you to use again and again!).

    If it's a spicy sauce, you can buy smoked paprika which gives a lovely flavour and lasts for aaaaaaages, about 1.50 a tin and I defy you to use it up before the BBD is long past!

    Smoked Paprika sounds nice. Do you know of a good source (not sauce) for it please?

    to smoke something i saw a programme that put tin foil on the bottom of a really hot frying pan, then a mixture of rice, tea and sugar on top of the foil.

    Put some more foil on top of that and then some oil on the top foil with whatever you want to smoke with the lid on and leave it for about 20 mins.

    Then read the ingredients list on the jar!

    If it's a short list you might just need to read the label in the shop!

    by squeaky
    The brand I have used and seen most often is "La Chinata" (Google it for a pic of a tin). I bought mine in a deli type place in Leicester (the one in St Martins if that helps anyone!) but I have seen it in supermarkets, Sainsbury's keep it in their special selection. You can get hot or sweet, I prefer the sweet, as you get the chance to add a lot of flavour without heat. The hot is pretty hot. I imagine any of the spice suppliers people use would do their own versions.

    Smoked paprika is also nice in a chilli, on cheese on toast, in curries, you just have to be careful not to get addicted and wind up with smoked paprika everything.

    This year, we will be trying to smoke our own paprikas and chillis in that thar smoker

    Cullumpster - you could try making a normal barbecue sauce (which I'm sure will be easy to find a recipe for, probably on here!) and add a little smoked paprika to it, possibly dust/marinade the chicken in that, and then use some smoked cheddar (Applewood or Oak smoked is easy to find) as the cheese topping, then the flavour would be through out. Actually I bet that would taste really nice. And I'm a vegetarian

    Somewhere on Old style is a link to an American site which shows you the recipes to lots of American 'secret' recipes. There should be a recipe on there for hickory chicken. I've tried searching but I can't find it.

    I've seen something similar, using a wok, with the grill that sits inside it.

    I would definitely try to get hold of some wood shavings though (they must be a hardwood, I can't recall why) rather than that particular combination!

    I'm fairly sure the instructions suggested moving the pan and all outside after you've started off the smoking so when you remove the lid the building doesn't get evacuated

    Definitely worth experimenting with but trying it on your children probably best to go with the smoked paprika for now!

    That was James Martin who did that in his Deli series


    If you want to go the "shop bought sauce" route then I can recommend Ainsley Harriot's Smoky Barbecue Sauce/Marinade ... it's absolutely delicious

    Thanks CQ i'll give that a bash.

    I've just found a recipe for BBQ sauce

    225ml tomato ketchup
    100ml cider vinegar
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 teaspoon Chili powder
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 cups water
    3 stalks celery, chopped
    3 bay leaves
    1 clove garlic
    2 tablespoons onion -- chopped
    4 tablespoons butter
    4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 dash black pepper

    Combine all the ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer about
    15 minutes. Remove from heat and strain.

    Note! The celery pieces that are strained out are excellent
    eating.



    i suppose you could make a big batch up and freeze it :confused:

    Trust you to remember that. Alan Coxon also told us how to smoke food, but haven't looked that up yet. Another yummy smoked ingredient which is very useful is smoked garlic. I've only seen it for sale either online or at one of the continental markets that tour round the place - 15 cloves for 7. I've been thinking this week about smoking my own - so this thread is very well timed.

    Garlic makes a roast chicken taste lovely - shove a cut bulb up it's bum, instead of a lemon Rub the skin with another cut bulb, then leave this bulb on the outside to flavour whilst cooking. Only done this in the oven, but I'll bet it's truly scrummy in the slowcooker.
