Out of the Blue

The last time I grilled chicken I had a little disaster, as I initially forgot to boil the marinade to decontaminate it so I could use it to baste the chicken as it cooks, so I tried to speed the process by putting it on the stove. Just as I was getting ready to turn the chicken I went inside to collect the marinade, and arrived just as it boiled over into a giant mess, so my chicken started to burn before I got back to it. Last night I was extra motivated to make it perfectly to make up for this, and after getting the fire going just right I put the chicken on, and the very next second the first raindrop fell in what turned out to be an incredibly heavy rain storm, which lasted exactly as long as my cooking session. The chicken came out okay considering I had to keep the grill closed and couldn't see very well, but it was far from the perfection for which I was striving, as I only ended up with one set of grill marks out of an ideal four, and the chicken came out a trifle chewy. One more incident in a row and I'm going to redub this recipe Murphy's Chicken, after the law of the same name.

I somehow doubt that it was their fault.
Fair enough. But then they shouldn't keep calling all their turkey recipes "fool proof."

Last Thanksgiving, I give my bro's wife the ATK recipe for perfect roast turkey. All you have to do is brine it, air dry it, roast it. And of course she fucks up the brine which is just salt and sugar and water. She skips the sugar and doubles up on the salt instead. Turkey comes out of the oven looking just super. Everyone take a bite and starts looking around at each other and coughing from all the salt. She tries to blame me for giving here the recipe. I then ask about the ratio of salt to sugar she used. 'Sugar? What sugar?' she asks. Well, anyway, the vegetables were still good.
