VFW Picnic Chicken Cook on the Pit

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Well, it's in the history books and I'm happy to say I pulled it off (with help, of course) with no complaints and nobody spit the bird out. A big Thanks to JJ for encouraging me to use his chicken mop instead of the Cornell mop and for his brine recipe as well. A very good combo indeed and I even used the raw egg, which I had doubts about. We did 80 pounds of chicken quarters with some larger pieces separated for a total of 113 pieces of chicken. Happy to report not ONE piece of chicken was left when I left the event at 2 PM. It hit about 90 degrees out and the pit was throwing big time heat so grates were moved around and a quick fix with some extra bricks to elevate the grate a bit to keep flare ups to a minimum. The hot links were scarfed down by the crew and others stopping by to see the cook, so 5 pounds of those went quick....Willie

It all looks good. Nothing like a bunch of happy people with full bellies.

I have not seen anything JJ uses that isn't tasty.

Happy smoken.

When my step dad passed away a few years ago the VFW gave him a full military funeral. He was in the RAF during WW2. They even got a bagpiper to play that day, as the piper started playing a light dusting of snow started falling. There wasn't a dry eye there...

Thanks for taking care of our past heros...

Good job Willie!

 

Another thanks to you for taking care of our vets and their families who also served right along with us!

 

Good luck and good smoking.
