    I love making wings using the Vortex. You'll enjoy it. Large end up makes a nice small grill for small skewers and such.

    Nice! I trust you'll share some nice pics!

    I need to get me one of those for afterburner steaks instead of using just the chimney. One of these days I'm going to burn my deck down.

      Now that is one fine-looking chicken.
      It would be a shame to eat it, but a crime not to.

      Great looking cook! Love the Kettle/Vortex setup for chicken. That skin looks very crispy.

      I see you've been paying attention on how to use your new Vortex. Putting the wood chunks on top of the grate generates longer and better smoke from my experience. Nicley done Elton.

      Ok, when you do, post some pics for inspection purposes. We need to make sure it meets our standards. 😂

        Like I mentioned, did Vortex roasted chicken last night. Thought I had a finished pic, but alas no.

        Dry brined with my Santa Maria rub for 4 hours and then dusted with Simon & Garfunkel before putting on. Came out delicious.

        Did I mention - I love my Vortex!!

        Cheers

              Your going to be put in isolation and lock down. That is an illegal word here, you know politics are shunned. You better get vax'ed and boosted Panhead John.

            I’ve had mine for a year but have only used it a couple of times. It has its uses but I find the SnS to be more versatile. I do like it as a burner to put under a cast iron pot. It’s a perfect shape for that. I’m a victim of MCS. If I only had the kettle and 1 smoker I’m sure I’d use it more. It is a nice accessory.
