Had my July 4th BBQ Belated Happy Independents Days to all of you

Had 4 Chicken Breast and 10 Drumsticks 

Rotisserie for the breast used the prongs and tied 


Used indirect heat a small snake half way around


Set the Vortex up with some Royal oak that was left from my brisket

using a Strike Afire that I broke into 4 pieces


these work great


No sense wasting that heat so I put the chimney on top


Holding 298* 


Took a peak after 2 hrs


Took a little over 3 hours to hit 170* 



Breast were fantastic

Now the WSM had the Vortex and sticks


This worked great for me not having to bend Temp held steady 340*


Fastest I have ever seen sticks cook 45 minutes they were at 180*


Still have lots of fuel so some Italian Sausage


You can't serve them without Peppers & Onions


Kids wanted Hot Dogs


Thanks for watching

I know I say this every time I see someone cook something with that vortex.

I have to get one of those.

Point to you!

Looks great Richie.  Beautiful color on the chicken breasts.  Beautiful.

That vortex seems to be the way to go and I would get one, but somehow I just don;t think my MES would appreciate a pile of charcoal burning in the cook chamber.
