Chicken Street Tacos with Fogo Lump Charcoal
TUESDAY 09.27.2016



Fire your grill up for direct heat. These chicken thighs are best cooked fast, as you want a nice char on the exterior. It adds a nice flavor to the finished taco. As the coals are heating up, season your chicken thighs with Lane’s SPF 53 rub. This has a nice heat to it and will complement the finishing white sauce. For those seeking heat, this is the rub for you.

Season both sides of the meat. Don’t worry about trimming the fat as it will cook off during the grilling process. If you have a large amount of fat on the thighs, feel free to trim a little. Fat is flavor, so don’t remove it all.

Once the coals are hot, toss the thighs on the hot grill grate. Since these are boneless, they are very thin and will cook quickly. The boneless thighs will cook over direct heat for about four minutes a side. If you have your Thermapen instant read thermometer, you’re looking for an internal temp of 165 degrees.

chicken preparation and grilling

After about 4-5 minutes, flip the chicken and repeat on the other side. Don’t worry about the flare ups, as you want a little char on the exterior. It also adds flavor. Once they reach 165 degrees internal or have gone for about eight minutes total, they are done. Remove from the grill and tent with foil for five minutes to allow the juices to redistribute into the meat. After five minutes, chop into bite sized pieces. As you can see below, these pieces are still super juicy and have some great color from the rub.

Add a good amount of Lane’s “Sorta White” sauce to the chopped chicken and mix together. The color and flavor of this sauce is FANTASTIC and pairs perfectly with chicken or pork. Trust me, you want this one in your rotation. It is a top seller for Lane’s.

Once mixed, start building your new favorite soft tacos with a little chicken, some pico de gallo, a few crumbles of quest fresco and of course some cilantro. These will not last long. I think I ate four before I decided to take some pictures. These are so moist and tender, you will wish you grilled some more chicken.

These would also make some great burritos or super flavorful nachos. This “Sorta White” sauce is bursting with flavors and is very similar to the Alabama white sauce that has exploded on the scene in recent years. Give this one a go when you’re hankering for a taco, or two or three or eight.

Back with Fogo

I tried Cowboy at Lowe’s last time. It was slightly cheaper. However it was mostly small pieces and a lot a dust. My max temp for pizza was only 550. Fogo always gets me 650-700. Now that I’ve figured out how to get my veterans discount again, I am back for good.

Thanks Fogo team
