How to Make Fireman Bob's Smoky Chicken and Mushrooms my way..


  1. Rinse your chicken off and pat dry and set aside...
  2. Remove the ends of the mushrooms and " clean " with a dry cloth...
    Cut the mushrooms in quarter pieces and set aside...
  3. Place the butter in a pan and allow it to melt fully.

    Place red pepper flakes, chives, onions, lemon pepper, fresh ground pepper in with the butter and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Place the mushrooms in this mixture and stir so that all the mushrooms are coated, do not " cook " the mushrooms here...
  5. Take a little of the butter/herb " sauce " and drizzle over the chicken
  6. Place the chicken in a BBQ Grill " Safe " pan and " stuff " the chicken with the mushroom herb mixture.
  7. Okay.... New " Learning Moment " on " How to Smoke " with your grill...

    If You have a charcoal grill, place the charcoal on one side of the grill and " light " the coals... This will " give " You a one sided HOT grill... Place the BBQ Grill " Safe " pan on the " Cool " side ( the side without the charcoal burning ) This Type of BBQing is known as " Indirect Heat " smoking...

    If You have a Propain Grill, You do the same but only " Light " one burner...
  8. Using a thermostat, Try to get the Temperature as close to 220 degrees as possible.

    Go to your grocery store and purchase your BBQ wood chips, There are many " flavors to choose from, Hickory being a very popular flavor....

    Place the " chips in water for about 30 minutes before You start to smoke....

    then place the chips in a non burnable container and place on the burning coals...

    This will " create " the SMOKE that You will Taste when You eat the chicken....

    Smoke for 3 hours watching every hour...
  9. Once the juices run clear, your chicken is done....

    Serve with a Crusty Bread and green salad !
  10. ENJOY !!!!!!!!!!!!!
