From Deep in the Heart of Darkest Minnesota: A Couple of Videos From Hawaii

"Best BBQ Chicken on the Planet"

"Watch world champion BBQ chef Joe Davidson prepare his winning chicken recipe. Cooking from Hawaii this time, he adds a bit of a Polynesian twist. This recipe will 'broke da mouth' (taste really good). Perfect for the Fourth of July...."

This really doesn't have much to do with grilling here in the heart of darkest Minnesota. But it's below zero, Fahrenheit, outside; I didn't get a chance to grill last weekend; and I figured I could use a change of pace.

What decided me on posting about this video was Joe Davidson's use of a chicken jacuzzi bath. I am not making that up. "Chicken jacuzzi bath!"

This video was recorded "on location in Honolulu" - which would account for the tropical plants and bright sunshine.

Joe Davidson talks you through the process of making what he calls the "best BBQ chicken on the planet." If you've got a good memory, or take notes: I'd say two or three viewings of this video might be enough for you to have a shot at the recipe, yourself.

The YouTube page includes links to Joe Davidson's website: http://www.joedavidson.com/Home/tabid/36/Default.aspx.

Now, for some Hawaiian scenery:

"360 view from on top of Diamond Head summit bunker on Oahu island in Hawaii. I am standing on top of the bunker's concrete roof on December 15, 2007...."

The sound you hear is wind on the camera's microphone.

This isn't the slickest video you'll ever see, but my hat's off to spoonyfork: It's one of the very few that actually give the viewer an idea of what it's like to stand where the camera is.
