Beercan Chickens in Brinkmann Smoke N Grill

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I just cooked these babies yesterday and thought I would share with y'all.

 

2 Chickens (about 3 lbs each) / covered with EVOO & Tony Chachere Creole Seasoning (inside & out). Beercans had minced Garlic & Apple juice (Beer was only for me :). Chickens had half an Apple stuffed in the neck. Put Chickens onto Beercans & into holders then, into a foil pan and spritzed with Apple juice.

                                                      ...put foil pan with Chickens onto top grill level of Smoker and put on the Smoker top.

                                                      (FYI- Fire Extinguisher was just out of pic- I almost forgot this item!)

 

2:40 pm            Smoker 255° / Chickens 54°

 

4:19 pm            Smoker 225° / Chickens 144°

 

4:31 pm            Smoker 217° / Chickens 144°

 

5:00 pm            Losing Smoker temp- added more Charcoal (3 Fireplace shovels full)

 

5:09 pm            Smoker 194° / Chickens 145°

 

5:36 pm            Removed water pan from Smoker / put Chickens on grill at Medium level to be closer to Charcoal bowl for

                        more heat. Brinkmann manual says cook Chickens to 180°.
