Smoked Chicken Seminar
September 27 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
In this seminar Dr. Knight will demonstrate how to prepare whole chickens to make delicious smoked barbeque chicken using a charcoal smoker. This technique can also be performed on kettle grills, propane grills, and other styles of smokers. We will prepare whole chickens and chicken quarters from poultry raised at the University of Maine’s J. Franklin Witter Teaching and Research Center, and discuss how to prepare, quarter, rub, smoke, and serve mouthwatering barbeque chicken. Also, Dr. Machado will discuss safety and hygiene related to handling raw and cooked chicken, and Kate Yerxa, a registered dietician, will discuss the cost savings of buying whole chickens and quartering them yourself, as well as, diet concerns relating to chicken.
