It's BBQ season again!

Here's a simple, tasty recipe for charcoal grillin that will have them begging for more!

What you will need:
Method:
Put chicken, oil and generous amount of rub in a ziplock bag or snap-tight container. Shake well to get the rub evenly distributed. Set aside for at least 1 hour.
Prepare grill with charcoal piled off to one side for indirect cooking.
While charcoal is primed for cooking soak pecan wood chunks in water.
Once grill is ready, apply half of soaked pecan wood chunks directly to coals and put the seasoned chicken on the grill opposite the hot side.
Cover grill and keep it that way when not tending the chicken or smoke.
Flip the chicken every 10 minutes and add pecan wood when the smoke subsides.
Remove chicken when done and eat!

I believe he was making a statement about my smoked turkey secrets a few threads down.

I dont really like to waste my time with chicken unless its a whole chicken, usually rotisseried over mesquite or hickory, sprayed with coconut water (trick from the Filipinos when roasting a pig) to get an insanely crispy skin with a slightly sweet taste. Otherwise, I stick to pork and beef. Chicken for me isn't worth the labor.

Good thread.... I will happily update this. I have a new brinkmann charcoal grill with an offset smoke box that will be getting a lot of use this year. I need to do some mods to it first however... i have a to create a baffle at the side opening to help evenly distribute the heat under the drip pan, and then i have some stainless steel mesh that i am making a basket for to hold all the charcoal. Need to get 2 good thermometers as well, any suggestions?

Ooo, I like that...we're closing on our house June 16th, and I need two grills....there is a gas line outside (woohoo no propane!) that I want to get a small gas grill just so I can cook a meal here and there for the family, but for big family gatherings, nothing beats a charcoal, and I want a big one...your's seems pretty nice (although I don't love steel grates, prefer iron)....whats the damage on it?

True. I will accept that b!tchslap. My grill never gets stored for winter because I use it year round as well... but I like when it gets warmer as my back deck can serve as an extension to my kitchen.

Nothing better than sipping a nice IPA next to a roaring fire pit while tending the grill. My down-wind neighbors have started discovering where all the delicious aromas have been coming from.

I've had an offset. I liked it but didn't find it as versatile as my Weber 22.5". It also rusted up like a mo-fo after one year.

Here it is... one year old and looking like **** but still very functional.



And adding more charcoal was always a pain in the ass too.

I wish you be best of luck with yours though. Post pics of your work!

I agree about the summer and deck thing....but I do love grilling in the dead of winter...the air is crisp, it's frosty, and you can huddle around the warm (hot) grill cooking something tasty. Reminds me of camping and having a fire in the winter....love it.

What's your weapon of choice now? This thing?
http://weber.com/grills/series/one-t...touch-gold-225

We've had this discussion before, I used to have a smaller one back in the day, and it is great, I just wish they made one like your pic...the circle design doesn't work for me.

Yep. that's the beastie. Mine doesn't have the thermometer though. Which is fine. I find they are useless after a year or so of regular use. I just use a wireless meat thermometer.

I've found the circle design works great for me as most of my grilling is indirect heat. It allows for plenty of room for the heat source on one side and food on the other. I had to get a rib rack though. A nice slab of ribs takes up a lot of grate real estate. I still find that I run out of room when grilling for a party though. Perhaps I should upgrade to this thing:

For slow cooked smoke I currently use this:

I prefer the electric because maintaining heat with charcoal for 6-10 hours is a real chore.

I'm planning to upgrade to this:

The steel grates is not for the grill itself, I am going to make a charcoal basket out of it, that way placing/removing charcoal from the offset box will be relatively easy. In addition, I am going to be wrapping the bottom half of the offset box with several layers of heavy duty aluminum foil. I've been reading up.. and the worst thing that happens to (cheaper) grills is that the charcoals eventually fall through the grates and end up roasting the crap out of the bottom of the grill. The basket I make, in addition to the several layers of alumimum foil, will hopefully preserve the integrity of the smoke box since that will be getting the most exposure to high heat.

that thing cost $120 lol...

I'm waiting for some nice weather that way I can get the basket good to go alont with the baffle to help with the heat transfer. Once it is all set up and ready to go, I'll post up some pics

Like I mentioned, the basket will help with charcoal changes You should be using the right side of that grill, i've been reading that without a baffle covering the opening, there could be a 50 degree different from left to right.

The pricetag is hard to swallow for basically a bowl with a grate on it...I do love it though.

Yea... I'm having serious doubts about my being able to pitch this convincingly to my wife. I can't even justify it to myself. I keep looking for one that someone put to the curb.

That thing is long gone. It wasn't the best version of an offset that could be gotten. It is not missed.
