Chick Sticks pellet grill recipe BBQ smokerChick Sticks

Chick Sticks are quick and easy to do. We fired up our Green Mountain’s little “Davy Crockett” tailgater. Perfect for tailgating, parties and hungry friends that drop in. Just do a quick dusting on your chicken with your favorite seasoning and put it on a stick. Tonight we went with curry using “Big Dick’s Curry Up”. Easy, simple and delicious…

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme. Wood pellet patio heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Rinse off the chicken strips and pat dry with a paper towel. Put them on the skewers that have been soaked in water so they won’t burn up on the grill. Then, season them with your rub.
Onto the tailgater for 10-12 minutes @ 375 degrees (190c).

Cooking Directions: Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill

To prepare the grill for cooking, check your pellet supply – top off or change flavors as needed. Scrape grill grates off. Press the “Start” button and give the grill about 15 minutes to reach temperature and the grates to burn clean.

Note: You can set the start temperature anywhere you want. I do 450 (230c) for a quick cleaning burn.

So after the grill comes up to temp and burns clean turn it back down to 375 degrees (190c).

Place everything directly onto the grill and just let it hang out and get happy for 10 minutes or so. Turn them after 5 minutes and grill them until you reach an internal temp. of 165 degrees (74c). Keep in mind that the meat will continue cooking for another 5 to 10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
