    World Famous Troutman's World Famous H.J Leggie's Chicken!

    Man, the Troutman thread on this old chicken recipe really brought it back to a time when we were kids. I couldn't wait to bring back these flavors. Funny, as we progress in our BBQ culinary skills, temp control everything, wrapping meat in plastic and cooking it with water etc.... We forget what got us here in the first place.

    His original thread: https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/fo...w-slow-chicken

    This all got me to thinking too. What other thing that I have not had in 35-40 years. Sausage. Now I am not a sausage man. In fact I have spent my life trying to love sausage, find the right sausage, make the right sausage etc... And I am in sausage heaven here in the rust belt of Texas. I think even my 7-11 store makes their own sausage. It's just never been my bag, because I could not find the sausage I grew up on. Riding the bike home from school, pulling up to the house and smelling Dad's Kingsford starter fluid smoking up to the sky.

    Smelled like supper.

    So here's to the stuff we grew up on. No matter how simple or cheap. Dang dang good eats!

    Chicken on the new Stampede. It rocked some chicken!

    Sausage on the ole WSCGC. Didn't even use the FIreBoard!

      Sausage! My favorite was some that a dear departed Aunt used to make. She used a store bought mix and added a few extras to it. I had that recipe and would make it on rare occasions, (rare because my wife doesn't even like to smell it cookin'). However, the company that made the mix stopped making it, so I can no longer duplicate it. However, I can come close with a different mix.

        2x on the Stampede, love mine. Would like to get that chicken recipe, looks awesome. Also, do I see lump charcoal, if so what brand?

          I'm lovin mine to brother! The recipe is posted in the link to Troutman's post above. The lump I use is always B&B lump. In this case I was just about out and had just a little bit of B&B hickory, and B&B oak. So I mixed the two.

        B&B ain’t available in South Florida. Bummer. Thanks for confirming that yard bird pic is the Troutman recipe.

            SOUS VIDE


          So glad I woke the old school spirits lurking inside you Lonnie !! Sometimes keeping it simple with basic ingredients is every bit as good as all the cutting edge cooking techniques we employ these days. There’s a reason folks did what they did back in the day, it worked and was delicious.

          If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear


          The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

          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.

          Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

          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.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker


          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


          Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
