Step by Step Method

Step 1

Whisk together peanut oil and mustard in a large bowl. Whisk in beer and lemon juice until is smooth. Stir in garlic, salt, pepper, basil and thyme. Add chicken pieces and turn to coat well. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 12 hours.

Step 2

In a charcoal grill, heat about 5 dozen charcoal briquettes until covered with white ash. Or fire up your gas grill, using one side will be fine if your grill has 2 or more burners.

Step 3

Drain chicken and discard marinade.

Step 4

Use large tongs to push hot briquettes to one side of the grill, if using charcoal.

Step 5

Away from the grill, spray grill rack evenly with non-stick cooking spray. Place chicken parts on grill rack, over the coals or side that is on.

Step 6

Cook uncovered until skin is crisp, about 10 minutes, moving and turning as needed with clean tongs to prevent charring.

Step 7

Move chicken parts to the cool side of the grill; cover and cook until meat is opaque throughout and juices run clear, about 10 to 15 minutes more.

Step 8

Serve with German mustard and sauerkraut, if desired.
