MAKES: 10 Pieces
PREP: 15 Min
COOK: 45 mins


  • Lane's SPF53 Rub
  • 10 Chicken Pieces (We used all legs)
  • 2 Cups SR Flour
  • 3 Tbsp baking powder
  • Spray oil (Canola or vegetable is fine)
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Buttermilk
  • 2 Eggs


    1. Firstly, you need to create your wet and dry coating. in a large bowl combine your dry ingredients (Flour and baking powder) then add approx 2 Tbsp of Lane's SPF Rub.
    2. Combine the Milk, Buttermilk, and eggs in another bowl
    3. Dip your chicken in the wet coating then the dry coating and set on a wire rack. Repeat until all your chicken pieces are coated

    4. Start up a full chimney of charcoal and dump into the centre of your kettle in baskets or a kettle cone if you have one. 
    5. Place a small chunk of wood on the coals (we used pecan)
    6. Spray the chicken with and even coat of spray oil and place around the outside of the cooking grate (indirect heat)
    7. For perfectly done chicken you want to aim for a temp of around 200c you may need to remove some fuel or tweak your vents depending on conditions.
    8. After 20 mins check the pieces, you may need to rotate to brown the outside evenly.

    9. after another 15 mins check the chicken for an internal temp of 80c if it needs to brown a little more leave for another 10 mins and check again.
    10. Once done. take off the kettle and give the pieces another generous dusting with SPF53 and serve.
    11. If you want to take it to the next level, drizzle with Lane's Sort White
