    Mamas Pernil

    I found a lil magic with my cook shack. I do my pernil (other part of the butt) the traditional latino way aka (shitload of garlic) and smoke it low to get some smoke on it, then I crank to 350. Then when it hits my desired temp I flip them skin side down (1 at a time) and put them on zone 4 (the 2nd grate above the hot zone). I know this a known method to crisp skin but this time, on this cooker, it worked perfect, It came out perfect absolutely perfect. I've been trying for year's on different cookers to get a combo of my moms pernil with the right amount of smoke and crunchy skin and this is it! I think the difference was distance from the flame that might be why it worked, I always had it close to the heat source. When I did it in the oven and it came out well, it also had distance from the flame.

    I don't want added smoke on my Pernil. I like the traditional mojo flavor. I don't make it very often because I live near Disney Rico and lechoneras are everywhere.

      Looks great!

    Looks real good. Another way to do it is after drying the skin, give it full heat for the first 20 mins to set the crackle, so you don't over cook the meat. then back it down and finish the cook.


      Looks spectacular!


        That looks outstanding!


          The only thing missing is me

        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 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.
