Iron Chef Japan 

Iron Chef Japan

I watched an episode of Iron Chef last night and they were preparing chicken. I thought I might learn something to help improve my own bbq chicken efforts.

They were using truffles to help season the chicken. To help the truffles adhere to a chicken breast for pan frying, the challenger brushed the breast with egg yolk and then put it in a freezer. It seemed to work well. He fried the chicken in butter and sliced it prior to serving. He ended up winning.

I've never had truffles, which I think is some kind of mushroom. I'll stick to the basic bbq seasonings based on salt, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, pepper, and a little brown sugar (depending on what kind of meat I'm cooking).

If you want to try an experiment sometime try mixing an equal amount of salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and brown sugar. Use it to season a pork butt and see how it turns out. I think you'll probably be surprised how simple it is to create a basic bbq rub.

You can tweak the rub to your own tastes, but within a few cooks you'll have a basic bbq rub customized for your own tastes and preferences. Give it a try sometime.
