    Whole Chicken on the Pellet Grill

    Made whole chicken again last night. Oiled with olive oil and dusted with Montreal Chicken Rub. Cooked on the pellet grill (Rec Tec) at 450F for 70 minutes. I also threw a baker on for the same time and with 30 minutes to go I also added carrots, roasted my usual way. Tossed with olive oil, salt, pepper, honey and a touch of cumin then wrapped in foil.

    A simple, easy and yummy meal!

    It looks great, almost like a food magazine shot!

      I agree, what a great looking bird

    Here'e the same chicken, cut up this time, and served as leftovers the next day along with half a leftover spud. I reheated them both in the BSO on reheat with convection at 375F for 15 minutes. The skin was still crispy!


      Nice....I may do some chicken on the PBC this weekend....I have a 11+ pound Picnic but I cooked 2 butts this weekend so I may have to wait a few weeks on that.

      Still figuring how I want to hang it and all that.....Need to cut me some extra rebar. Found a good long piece cutting grass at our new school.

          Frito this is perhaps the easiest and BEST smoked chicken if you follow the recipe closely http://amazingribs.com/recipes/chick...d_chicken.html I don't know what you use for smoking wood but I recommend a fruit wood like apple, cherry or peach on chicken, or light doses of pecan. I'd stay away from strong woods like oak or mesquite on chicken. I use my rib rub, you can use Memphis Dust or Simon & Garfunkle chicken rub of Meathead's. They will all work great on chicken.

          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.

          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.

          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

          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.
