We've been grilling chicken for years with mixed results - now that I have the 'secret', it has been win-win everytime, regardless of what parts are used. Thanks for this video! Never again with dry chicken!

This sounds great but I wished AR would add more tips in their grilling videos for those of us who only have a charcoal grill. Some grills don't have the space for moving the charcoals over for the amount of top space that is being used and it's hard to regulate the temperature as well; no turning down to "medium heat", or keeping the coals from burning out during the cooking time. Cooking with charcoal is quite different.

Just grilled chicken breasts and thighs just the way the video shows and it turned out SO good! The most successful grilled chicken I have ever made. Thanks for the great video.
