My better half and I were at the property so I got to cook with "Joe" Who hoo !!
I read up on Minion Method as suggested and I think I did well.
The temps were far more regular and almost predictable :-)
So off we go .....
As you will see I cooked 2 chickens - 2 different ways.
I was planing out who goes where so everyone can play nice :-) Potatoes on the left.
I used the trays so food would be easier to take out.
I used a chicken dry rub from SMF - however - I also added leftover rubs and made my own "brew"
Of course I had a few of those during the cooking.LOL
Actually, Funky had a beer also (Coors Light)
So here is my cooking set-up. Please note the heat/smoke comes into the chamber from the
bottom right. This is why I put funky closest to the direct heat (figured it would need it)
I put the #2 in the middle thinking it would cook through and not require as long cooking time,
even though they were coming out at the same time and that was not an issue!
I could hear some sizzling and some fine cooking,
I mopped my birds twice and I did not want to keep opening the chamber.
Looking better :-)
Almost there ....
OK time to eat LOL !
They were both delicious, I was surprised they were so moist.
I cooked for 2 1/2 hours and probably should have made it 3. There was a very small amount of red
with funky and we fixed that - no one was sick.
I have a question:
I mentioned the heat/smoke comes out at bottom right whici is also the hotest point.
The heat flow is not even under the grill.I have a tube which will run the length of the barrel.
Should I install it and put holes on the top to help distribute heat evenly.
What are your thoughts ?
