It was a pretty nice day here Saturday. I thought I'd fire up the Kettle/Vortex combo for dinner. These are a fairly simple couple of dishes that were oh so good.

First up the chicken thighs:

After I had another Gansette. The chicken got a coating of SBRs sauce. The unsauced one was for my buddy Skidmark.

Skidmark making sure I didn't forget his piece of chicken.

Now that the chickens off. It's time for the sirlion tips. I marinated these in some teriyaki sauce for about 3hrs. Cooked on high heat:

I let them go untl they didn't stick to the grate. Then flipped them over and repeated. Here they are off the Kettle.

And finally a sliced shot. See I told you it was a simple meal.

These tasted so good. Thanks for taking a moment to look.

Thank you tag, you won't be disappointed with the Vortex. So many different ways of using it, but it shines with chicken parts.

Appreciate the kind words and like Chop. I think Skidmark would put up a fight if someone tried to steal his piece of the bounty.

Thanks Ray, Outside of kettles themselves. The Vortex is the best and most used piece of outdoor cooking equipment I've purchased. Chris
It is a truly great accessory Chris, for myself it is tied with the SnS, love 'em both! RAY

great looking meal! And you're right, simple is sometimes better. I love my improvised vortex, wished I had thought of it sooner!

Agreed Ray, Although I haven't used my SnS as much as I do the Vortex - YET.

great looking meal! And you're right, simple is sometimes better. I love my improvised vortex, wished I had thought of it sooner!

Thanks Ryan for both the kindly words and like appreciate them. Better late then never on the vortex usage. I didn't even season the chicken thighs as I new my wife wanted BBQ sauce on them.
