We've added a recipe article with ideas and tips for using our Smoked Sous Vide Chicken. Check out this article for cooking tips.
Seriously... Best. Chicken. Ever.
Please keep your comments and ideas coming!
The one advantage factory chicken has over ours is that since their birds never have the option to run around or live long good lives, the meat is always super tender.
Their chicken doesn't have much flavor nor is it all that healthy...
... but it sure is tender.
Our drumsticks and wings are trickier to cook, but man, when you get it right, the flavor is out of this world.
Getting it 'right' means slow cooking and then using in soups or then crisping up the skin to make an amazing texture contrast.
While amazing, this takes a lot of time that frankly most of us don't have on a daily basis.
I figured there has to be a better way.
I worked over the years on perfecting our chicken and I want to share it with you. The catch is that I don't know which or how many of you would prefer the wings and/or drumsticks to be pre-smoked and ready to eat.
I know many of you love to cook and have your own favorite recipes for these cuts and I'd hate to take that away from you.
Here are some ideas that I'd love feedback on, please be candid in your comments so that I can adjust and make TC Farm be just what you'd like it to be for your family.
Our wings are really best when smoked and then cooked slow for 8-10 hours and then grilled, pan seared or broiled to crisp up the skin. I can't tell you how good they are after all that work!
We can handle all the smoking and slow cooking if you can warm and sear them.
The wings would come to you in a vacuum sealed package ready to eat after quickly crisping up the skin on a grill or in a pan or broiler. We can include some organic local BBQ sauce or just have a simple preparation of smoke and salt so you could use them in any dish or sauce.
Would you prefer:
Tender smoked pan seared chicken wings
I think drumsticks are a bit more versatile than wings. However, they pose the same cooking challenges and rewards.
Again, we'll handle all the slow smoking and cooking, so the drumsticks would come either ready to crisp up and serve or incorporate into a quick meal.
