  1. I been having so much trouble getting to hot going to try this tonight on chicken thighs. Been thinking about putting gasket kit in.

  2. I just put the bottom ones in. Doing good. 375 steady. Usual chicken done in 20 minutes so hot.
  3. That worked great.

    The chicken looks really good. If that's a kettle and you want HOT get a Vortex and you'll have your high HOT heat.

    Point for sure
  5. When I used the Vortex the chicken was burnt in about 20 minutes.

    Were you putting the chicken directly over the Vortex? I can't say I've ever burnt chicken or anything using mine.

  7. No had around. This grill has always run very hot. Need try less charcoal next time.
