Having a great weekend so far!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

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...

Nice job on the chickens.  They look great.  Nice color, and the meat looks real juicy.

 

I do have a question regarding your plated shot.  How can you eat just ONE mushroom???????????  I didn't even know they came in groups of less than a dozen or so.  LOL.
