    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

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

            Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
            Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
