Yes you heard me, BRUSSEL SPROUTS. I am not kidding.
I was like you once, a non believer until I came across this little beaut. Roasting the Brussels underneath the chicken whilst they soak in the juices is a whole new world to the mandatory soggy nonsense you’re used to at Christmas. Hell if that chicken wasn’t so damn tasty then they’d almost be the star of the show.
What you need:
A whole Chicken
Bag of Brussel Sprouts
- Get the coals on your smoker going until they’re white hot and ready to get smokin.
- prep your chicken. Rub all over with a bit of olive oil and meat dust or your favourite rub. Put the chicken in a roasting tray as we want to catch all the juices and get her on the smoker for about an hour.
- Throw your brussels into the bottom of the tray and throw them around in the chicken juices.
- Get the whole lot back in the smoker for about 45 minutes until the brussels have roasted and browned nicely and you have a good crunch to your chicken skin.
- Veg? Yes please sir.
