A successful chicken cook

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.

Take the plated pictures anyway. If it something you like to do then tell him that. Also tell him, that you have obligations to give us as much food porn as possible.

Nice cook by the way.
