    Vortex chicken thighs with a custom rub and Asian glaze

    Hey folks,

    Decided to use my Vortex (or Poor-tex, as I cut off the bottom of a stainless steel bowl for 2 bucks). I placed it in the Big Green Egg, and filled it with briquettes (!). Well, I ran out of charcoal, and what's a poor pit master to do? Besides, I knew it was gonna be a hot n fast cook.

    Flavor wise I wanted to try something new, so I concocted a 'new' rub on the fly that turned out real good. Here are the ingredients.

    Chicken
    700 grams deboned chicken thighs

    Rub
    2 tsp lemon pepper
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp ginger
    1 tsp cumin
    0.5 tsp salt

    Glaze
    2 tbsp sesame oil
    1 tbsp Tiger sauce


    I applied the rub a couple of hours ahead. Then fired up the briquettes. Basically lit them with a few fire starter matches, then walked away, with grill fully open. 20 minutes later I had a jet engine with hot air

    Anywho, drop the chickenses in, place them in a circle outside the Vortex opening. Close the lid and let them sweat.
    After 15 minutes, open the lid, flip 'em, and let them go another 15. Check for doneness with a Thermapen. You want them to hit 70Β° C / 158Β° C.

    Mix the glaze in a bowl large enough to hold the chicken thighs. Drop them in right away and toss them to give them a good coating. Now serve them steaming hot. I sprinkled some sesame seeds and parsley on to make for a nice presentation.

    Flavor wise this was a big hit. The rub was nice, and the glaze added a nice Asian touch. Highly recommended!

    Alright, pics or it didn't happen, right? Here goes:

    Alright, that's it from me, and since we have this Covid situation I guess the phrase "Hank is out" is no longer appropriate, so I'll just wish y'all an awesome weekend with "Hank stays in"

      Medium egg. Don’t know the size of the Vortex, guessing 12” dia.

    Wow. Simple and delicious. I copied this to the Paprika app, along with photos.

    Good call to use the Egg instead of a kettle, what with the snow/cold temps. Even though the Egg must take a while to heat through. At least it holds the heat. I'm going to try it on my WSCGC.

    Thanks, Henrik . Stay safe out there.

      Man my Paprika locked up on me with a download of a recipe. I was freaking out until it let me upload all my recipes into the Cloud, all 408 of them. I had to reload the app and download the files, which worked like a champ. Didn't mean to hijack this, just the word Paprika gave me pause.

      Good to know, Troutman . I'll check out that option.

      So far I either cut/paste my recipes directly into Paprika or load them onto a cooking 'blog I have and download them from there into Paprika. Pretty cumbersome.

        Great minds - or at least mind (yours). I am planning on breaking out the vortex Sunday for the traditional game day wings.
