    Reheating PBC chicken.

    This may have been talked about before. But I’m to damn lazy to search for it. 😁

    Any really good ways to reheat chicken quarters that were cooked on a PBC?

    I hate to use the microwave. 😬

    But is the best way?? Click image for larger version

    The old fashioned way? Wrap in foil, no added liquid, heat in oven at a medium temp to 140. ???? Just a guess. But I would try it that way. But I will defer to my more learned colleges here.

      Hey it can’t hurt to try. Right.
      Thanks for the suggestion.

    I vote to throw them in the deep fryer to reheat! Crispy skin, reheated in a few minutes, win win!

      That’s a great idea. Not sure how the wife would like it though.
      I shall keep this in mind the next go round. 👍

    Micro-wave with a 1/2 cup of water. I know ya don’t wanna do it. But all you are doing is reheatin it, not cookin em. Mebbee a minute to 1 1/2 in 30 second bursts. Just sayin.

      Did the reheat in the microwave. 😬

      No water and went 2-1/2 minutes on high.
      Actually worked out pretty well. Skin obviously not crispy but the meat was still juicy, tender and flavorful.
      Still hate the idea of nuking my chicken leftovers as they always dry out. But not this time. So. What the heck. 🤷🏼

      The main situation with using a micro-wave is using the High setting.
      Far better results from 40% power and cook until warmed up.

      I thought about that. But didn't have the time the other night.

    I would actually prefer to eat it cold. There is just no way of reheating I have found that makes it anywhere near as good as fresh. Plus, I have just always liked cold chicken out of the fridge since I was a kid.

      Nothing wrong with that. I do the same sometimes if it's just me.

      Yeah, Steve B , I only do that for a snack or if it's just me.

    The only way I found to reheat skin-on chicken is to re-grill/smoke it. Or convection oven it. You're just cooking it again really, but you only need to take it up to 140+. Yep, breasts will be a bit drier than first time. It's either drier meat or soft skin, your choice.

      Which is the lesser of two evils?

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.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

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.
