I've been posting here about trying to expand my capabilities at the grill to include slow cooking and smoking. I finally had a successful cook last weekend doing some chicken thighs with maple and I thought I'd share..
Here's my baby - a 20 year old Sunbeam 2 burner cast aluminum gasser. I refurbed it last season with new burner, wheels, grate, fresh paint, and even stained the redwood shelves (yes, real redwood).
Also scored a sweet cover for it off Amazon -
Wrapped up about 6 oz of maple (I have a lot of it) in foil with some holes, and low and behold there was smoke and no flames!
Prepped the chicken with Magic Dust (Magic Dust - Recipe
) and cooked for about an hr until chicken was at 175 (my brother won't eat red meat) then added sauce. Also had a couple of taters baking, per suggestions I got from here, greased and salted. Couple ears of corn, pre-boiled and kept warm in the grill.
It was getting late in the afternoon, and my brother was hungry - If I'd taken a picture of the plated meal he woulda slapped me.. I'll just say it was excellent and thanks to the forum for the help.
BTW I served the taters with sour cream and chopped green chilies - YUM.
