First Smoke in Chargriller - Easy Chicken w/QView

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Please be kind, but this is my first smoke, and first smoke in my new chargriller. I used some applewood chips and smoked at around 250 for 2 hours. The chicken came out pretty juicy and I'm looking forward to something more ambitious in a week. No mods yet on the grill, but thinking about sealing the lid and adding the dryer vent. Here are a few pics.

Thanks everyone. There weren't any leftovers. My one year old son, who is generally a picky eater, cleaned out all the dark meat. He usually avoids chicken like the plague, but must've been something in the smoke. Bonus :)

Very nice job Devin. The chicken looks really good. And it sounds like it passed the ultimate test -- your son liked it!

I'm practically just down the street from Kent -- next time you fire it up let mne know and I'll help make sure there are no leftovers!

Lokks good to me!! One question though, you said two hours in the smoke at about 250? Sounds good, but did you probe it??

I use a Char Griller to and it works really well after I did the mods to it. The tuning plates are probable on of the best things I added. even heat all across the grates. Your chicken looks really good

Well, it said 250 on the char griller thermostat. Everything I've heard says that thing is usually off by 30 to 50 degrees, so I could have been at 280 or 300 - or it could have been 250. I like the River City BBQ gauges and I think I'll either put 1 in or 2, one on each side of the grill.
