    FireBoard 2 Drive High Temperature Hanging Chicken

    I used a FireBoard 2 Drive, Pit Viper Fan, WSM 18.5, one Weber Chimney of Kingsford Original, hanging hooks, and a LavaLock Rib Hanger. I cooked at 350 degrees with all vents wide open and the fan. The chicken had a rub and KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce. The smoker could not maintain 350 without the fan but did so with the fan with the other bottom and top vents open.

    Wow, looks fantastic! Just curious, are you looking to get your WSM hotter than 350 degrees? With my 18.5, I fill my Vortex with lump, open up all the vents and remove the side/access door, and I'll get it to 450-475 for the entire cook. Usually it takes 35-40 minutes to cook a spatchcocked chicken, so not sure how long the temp could keep; but if you're looking to get hotter, that's a way to do it.

      Never thought of taking off the door/Vortex. How much difference does the Vortex alone make? Thanks.

        Not sure. I only use the vortex when I’m cooking chicken and want to get as hot as possible, so I always take off the door. I’m sure I’ll cook chicken this week, so I’ll try just the vortex (with the door closed) and let you know!

            Truckbutt Did a test last night to see how hot my WSM could get with no fan, empty water pan, all vents open, the vortex in, and the side door closed. I got 385-425 for a little over an hour before the temps started dipping below 385. It only got above 400 for about 25 minutes. I'm sure a more experienced user could get longer times, but I certainly ain't one of them
