    I am by my self tonight.  I cooked up some chicken parts.

    Full chimney of RO started by a starter cube.



    Chicken, 2 thighs and a leg.  Some how I got a skinless thigh in there.   [​IMG]


    Once they were at IT I threw them on the coals.



    After a quick sear.


    Very juicy.  On the coal sear gives a different taste but its great.



    Thanks for lookin.

    How long do we give them a quick sear, and then what do we do with them. I watched someone do steaks like that in a video. Very interesting.

    They look fantastic BTW.

    The process and the results both look awesome! So juicy! I'll have to try this.

    Maybe 30 seconds on each side.  Then I eat them.  I have done steak too.

    Thanks man.   Just be sure to blow the ash off first.

    So, that was a fully smoked chicken piece thrown onto a lump charcoal fire to sear the skin?

    Different.  Very different.  You need to be careful when the wife is gone.

    I usually like my ashes on the side, but this way it just sticks all over the chicken... "ummmm".

    You might have something there, but probably not.  30 seconds would make you sick as the meat would be raw.

    You can't even cook a chicken leg in the microwave for 30 seconds and have it done.

    Hey wait a minute.  Do you see any ash on the chicken or steak?

    No ash was on the chicken, look it up.

    I have done it many times.  

    You should try it.

    You might like it.

    I believe you've misread his post.

    The chicken was cooked and then put onto the coals.

    Ummmm It's cooked first and then seared.   NO ash get's on the food.   It's a freeking GREAT way to sear the meat.   

    You can throw your meat into the fire after you're done smoking it for a reverse sear.  I do this on my mini all the time when i don't want to put a charcoal grate over the coals when i'm done smoking them.  If you keep your mind open you might just learn something. [​IMG]  

    A tiny bit of ash got on one piece but it was nothing.... just blow off your coals and it tastes fantastic.

    Even I had to go back and reread, I completely skipped over the cooked to internal temp part, ashamed to admit it but did it more then once. Did you cook the steaks right on the coals?

    I watched good old Alton Brown cook a steak like that and also just cook one over the screaming hot chimney or something.

    I cooked the steak almost to the IT I wanted the on to the coals.

    I have seen steak cooked on a chimney before.

    Ya know, were they not prior cooked, they would remind me of a lot of Boy Scout camping trips. Although not by design......LOL

    I believe Alton used the coals to cook his fajitas. Not uncommon in West Texas.

    Looks Good C-Man! And I love that charred exterior taste too!
