Weber Jumbo Joe / Rotisserie Chicken

This cook was done on my newer 18-1/2” Weber Jumbo Joe with the Cajun Bandit Rotisserie Ring.



The chicken was a rather large roasting chicken that weighed in at 6-1/2 pounds. I planned to both brine and marinade it overnight in the fridge. I made up some Shake’s Honey Brine and also used a bottle of Ken’s Italian salad dressing for the marinade.



I injected 1 oz. each of the Honey Brine in both the legs and thighs of the chicken. I also injected 2 oz. in each side of the breast.



I placed the injected chicken into a large zip-lock bag and poured the marinade dressing over the chicken.



The prepped chicken went into the fridge for the overnight stay. I turned the package over several times during this span to be sure that all the chicken was soaking some of the marinade during the night.



The next morning, I setup the grill using two Weber charcoal baskets with a jumbo size (5 lb) tin foil loaf pan in the center to catch the drippings. I then added some hot Stubb’s charcoal and also placed a large chunk of hickory on top of one of the charcoal baskets.
Beautiful sunny day with a starting ambient temp of 32 degrees.



I trussed the chicken and mounted it on to the rotisserie spit rod. Next step was to sprinkle on a light coat of SGH rub and it was ready for the kettle.





I placed the extension ring on the cooker and then added the rotisserie chicken and brought the temperature up to my cooking range of about 275 to 300 degrees.



I cooked the chicken until the rub was setup so it wouldn’t wash off and then I started my “Roadside Chicken” mop or baste period.



The chicken was mopped at about every 10-15 minutes thru out the balance of the cook.





I pulled the chicken when the internal in the deepest part of the thigh was at about 175 degrees. I think it came out looking great and made for a nice presentation.



We planned to use this chicken in several treats where it will probably be chopped up so I did cut the chicken up and sliced the breast and plated it for a picture.





Later in the day, wife made up some of those real thick egg noodles and I added some of the chicken to this great dish. Next dish will be some smoked chicken salad!

Max,

The rotisserie ring is from Cajun Bandit and is a combo unit. It will fit most 18-1/2 inch kettles and also the standard size WSM.
