If it's not, it could cause you to become very sick. Happy grilling!

The Grill

Barbeque chicken cooking, and barbeque beef cooking, requires a grill. There are many different types of grills that you can cook with. You can cook with a gas grill or a charcoal grill. A gas grill will start immediately as you just turn on the gas and start the grill. Charcoal grills sometimes take a little bit to light but some people prefer the taste they get with a charcoal grill. It's all up to you. When you find the one you like, it's likely you'll stick with it for your barbeque chicken cooking. Some people are so for their type of grill that they would never switch to the other one. That's just how loyal grillers can be.

The Chicken

Visit your local supermarket and you'll find all sorts of pieces of chicken that you can barbeque chicken cook with. You can cook with all breasts which is preferable to most people because there are no bones in them. Some prefer to get wings, legs and breasts and they cook all of it at once to give people more of a choice on what to eat. You'll want to marinade the chicken first before you barbeque chicken cook. There are many marinades you can use. You can find recipes on the internet or you can just use some Italian salad dressing. The marinade really brings out the taste of the chicken and it's the signature of any expert griller.


When you're barbeque chicken cooking, you want to make sure the chicken is cooked thoroughly. If it's not, then you could get salmonella poisoning. This is very serious and someone can become very ill if this happens. So make sure you measure the chicken or at least cut it open to make sure it's not still pink inside. The chicken should be cooked all the way through when you're barbeque chicken cooking. It might be a good idea to poke holes or to cut a slit into each piece of chicken so that it cooks thoroughly.

Now all you have to do is sit back and wait for the adulation to come from everyone who loves your chicken because you did so well as barbeque chicken cooking.
