It has gotten above bone chilling cold here for the first time in awhile and we put up the tree.
As it isn't frigid, it was obviously time to smoke. I like my chicken crispy but my Bradley just doesn't crank out enough heat. I decided to try putting my AMNPS in my Weber grill with just one burner lit. No go. That one burner just sucks the oxygen and the AMNPS won't stay lit. So, I was into just straight grilling on the Weber.
We had a small frying chicken. I made a rub with:
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
I spatchcocked the chicken and put rub over both sides and under the breast skin.
I then put it over the middle burner of the Weber. The middle burner was off and the front and back were on low which kept it about 350 F. I cooked it for 40 minutes with the skin up and then turned it and cooked it with the skin down for 20 minutes. That brought the IT to 170.
I then cut it into chunks and it was time to eat.
The verdict: It turned out very tasty but I miss the smoke. I think I am back to smoking it in the Bradley and crisping the skin on the Weber. Or, if I beg just right, I might talk She Who Must Be Obeyed into a pellet smoker.
I did a Youtube video of hte project if you would like to see it.
