    Here is some Q-view from Monday's smoke [​IMG].

    I've been playing around with using the grill for smoking. I've been doing turkeys and chickens (smoked on the rotisserrie), which come out fantastic, decided to try some BB's on the grate. Smoked them with some hickory at around ~230°.

    I do notice there is a 25~30 degree difference across the grate, so made sure to juggle and spin them a few times.

    Sprinkled with some Ms Dash garlic herb seasoning.


    On the grill with some Hickory.


    After an hour, mopped with some apple juice and whiskey 50/50.


    Foiled them after 3 hrs, out of the foil after 1.5 hrs and sauced with some Bullseye.


    Finished after letting the sauce setup for another half hour or so. Very happy with them, juicy and tender.



    And the close up [​IMG].

    I think those ribs are frowning in the last photo....due to their short life span. Yummy [​IMG]

    No..I have two smokers now, one of them makes a pretty nice grill too [​IMG], Still have the MES, I'll use it for larger smokes.

    The grill is something I've been staring at and thinking "I bet I could turn this into a decent horizontal gas smoker". Can never leave well enough alone and like challenges [​IMG]. I also use it as a matter of convenience, fast to setup and easy to clean (crank the burners and burn it out). It really does a great job as a smoker, the smoke rings show the smoke is doing it's job (smoking not grilling) [​IMG]. I can get temps as low as 225 or more than 500+, and it has a rotisserie.

    I usually cook mostly poultry, turkey or a couple chickens once a week, and you can't beat a nicely smoked bird on the rotisserie. Best of both worlds [​IMG].

    My girl said the same thing, nothing but healthy this weekend. After my Memorial Day smoke and a week of leftovers, I guess I can understand.

    My chicken drumsticks that I made for the party were a big hit, but I just could not get the skin to be crispy the way I wanted. Think I might smoke some more of them this weekend only skinless and see how they turn out.
