    Had my July 4th BBQ Belated Happy Independents Days to all of you

    Had 4 Chicken Breast and 10 Drumsticks 

    Rotisserie for the breast used the prongs and tied 


    Used indirect heat a small snake half way around


    Set the Vortex up with some Royal oak that was left from my brisket

    using a Strike Afire that I broke into 4 pieces


    these work great


    No sense wasting that heat so I put the chimney on top


    Holding 298* 


    Took a peak after 2 hrs


    Took a little over 3 hours to hit 170* 



    Breast were fantastic

    Now the WSM had the Vortex and sticks


    This worked great for me not having to bend Temp held steady 340*


    Fastest I have ever seen sticks cook 45 minutes they were at 180*


    Still have lots of fuel so some Italian Sausage


    You can't serve them without Peppers & Onions


    Kids wanted Hot Dogs


    Thanks for watching

    Looks great Richie.  Beautiful color on the chicken breasts.  Beautiful.

    That vortex seems to be the way to go and I would get one, but somehow I just don;t think my MES would appreciate a pile of charcoal burning in the cook chamber.  [​IMG]
