I'm having a great weekend so far! I started by throwing some burgers on the grill for lunch and I smoked them with some mesquite. They came out absolutely wonderful! Very juicy and flavorful for having only been seasoned with salt and pepper.
I then threw some pecan on the coals and two chickens rubbed in Cajun seasoning and injected with creole butter. They came out wonderful too! I feel the seal of approval is my wife; I caught her cutting up the chickens and eating about half of it! :)
Tomorrow I'm heading out to the Tail of the Dragon with a couple of close friends! 318 curves in 11 miles!!!!
So, I threw the chickens on after lunch and poured a Jack Daniel's Honey Whiskey over ginger ale. I was a little disappointed with the Maverick RediCheck; it displayed a probe temp of 80 and a grill temp of 45 while just sitting out in the open air. :(
I felt the need to mettle with the damn grill and this is what the chicken looked like after a couple of minutes with some pecan smoke going.
And here is what they looked like after they hit 165 and I brought them in!
I was REALLY happy with how juicy the chicken was!
The meat just came off the bone without effort.
My wife cooked up some green beans and I threw a couple of large mushrooms on the Vision that came out great. I also had some of my favorite (store bought from Publix) potato salad!
And tomorrow I have to wake up early because a few friends and I are heading out to the Tail of the Dragon! This is what I'm driving...
