Barbecue Chicken

Barbecue Chicken

Ingredients

* 2 chickens (or 4 whole bone-in chicken breasts) halved lengthwise
* 1 1/2 cups Italian dressing, recipe follows
* 1/4 cup Neelys Barbecue Seasoning, recipe follows
* 1 cup Neelys Barbecue Sauce, recipe follows

Directions

Rinse chicken halves in cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Place chicken in a large bowl or baking dish, coat with Italian dressing and evenly season with Neelys seasoning. For best results, allow the chicken to marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

If Cooking Inside:

Take the chicken out of the refrigerator and brush chicken with Neelys Barbeque Sauce.

Place into a preheated 350 degree F oven for 45 minutes.

If Grilling Outside:

Thirty minutes before you’re ready to cook, take the chicken out of the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature. Preheat the grill to a medium temperature, about 275 degrees F preferably over hickory and charcoal.

Place the chicken halves on grill, meat side down. Cover grill and cook for about 50 minutes. Flip chicken over and let it brown until the chicken becomes golden, about 15 to 20 minutes. The wing and the drumstick should become very tender and will easily pull away at the joints. Brush the chicken with Neelys Barbecue sauce during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
Neely Italian Dressing:

* 2 tablespoons ground mustard
* 2 garlic cloves, smashed
* 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
* 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
* 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
* 1 tablespoon sugar
* 2 tablespoons Neelys Barbecue Seasoning
* 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
* 1 cup canola oil
* Salt and pepper

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, except the oil and salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups

Neelys BBQ Seasoning:

* 1 1/2 cups paprika
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 3 3/4 tablespoons onion powder

Add all ingredients to a bowl and stir until combined. Keep in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Neelys BBQ Sauce

* 2 cups ketchup
* 1 cup water
* 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
* 5 tablespoons light brown sugar
* 5 tablespoons sugar
* 1/2 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
* 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
* 1/2 tablespoon ground mustard
* 1 tablespoon lemon juice
* 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently, for 1 hour 15 minutes.

Yield: 3 1/2 cups

grilled yellow fin tuna

Grilled Yellow Fin Tuna with Grilled Pineapple Salsa

1 pineapple, peeled and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices
6 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus 1 teaspoon
4 (6-ounce) tuna steaks
1 tablespoon Essence, recipe follows
Fresh cilantro sprigs, for garnish

Directions

Brush the pineapple slices lightly with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, then place the pineapple slices on the grill and cook, turning occasionally, until softened slightly and nicely marked by the grill, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and allow to cool to room temperature. Dice the pineapple slices (discard the tough core portions) and place in a medium nonreactive bowl. Add the red onion, bell pepper, vinegar, jalapenos, lime juice, cilantro and minced garlic. Drizzle with 3 tablespoons of the olive oil and stir well to combine. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and set aside as you prepare the tuna.

Set a grill pan over medium-high heat. Season the tuna steaks with remaining salt and Essence and brush with the 2 remaining tablespoons of the olive oil. Place steaks on the grill, turning 45 degrees after 2 minutes. Repeat on the other side for an additional 2 minutes or until medium-rare. Remove from heat and set aside. Serve with the Grilled Pineapple Salsa.
