Chicken Drummies

Recommended Posts

My wife and I did chicken drummies seasoned with Buffalo Wing seasoning cooked indirect around the Vortex on the Jumbo Joe and smoked with cherry wood chunks.

Had a few that would not fit on the first round so on round two we also added Big K'z Glaze at the end of the cook. For our hot wing preference the Buffalo Wing seasoning is perfect without sauce, but with Big K'z Glaze wow does it kick up the heat and bring a whole new flavor!

Was that the inaugural feast from the grill? It looks awfully shiny inside.

It was, I purchased the grill 2 years ago and just took it out of the box! Target had them clearance price in the fall for $30 and I just knew I had to get one!

That Vortex thingy, how is that different than just putting a pile of coals in the center of the grill?

That Vortex thingy, how is that different than just putting a pile of coals in the center of the grill?

With a pile of coals in the middle of the grill the drummies would still be cooking with quite a bit of direct heat from the coals. With the Vortex the stainless steel walls eliminate any direct heat from the coals.

In this particular cook a coffee can would provide to same, but the Vortex actually provides 4 different methods of cooking direct/indirect. I will post a link with more accurate description and there is also a video demonstrating the Vortex's functions. It is a handy grilling tool with charcoal! www.owensbbq.com/vortex.html

Mossy, Very interesting. I could see where it would be handy. For right now, I just bought a Weber rotisserie, going to keep practicing with it. Did a turkey breast last weekend that came out juicy and moist, the wife raved about it. I see in another post that you have a rotisserie (that prime rib looked fantastic), do you have any rotisserie accessories that you'd recommend?

All I have is the rotisserie ring, electric motor, 2 spit forks and a shaft. Do have a link for me to see what other accessories for rotisserie are available as I would be interested!

Thats exactly what I have, the ring, spit, and motor from Weber. I've just done several searches on 'weber rotisserie accessories' and found different baskets and such, was hoping you had one that you thought was good. Reading thru the reviews on the big river site, some people love them and some people are meh. I'd post a link but the powers that be on this site don't like other links. Just do the search I put in above.

Let me know if you find something that 'I have to get'! smile

My wife and I were having this conversation last night and she brought up the 3 different baskets we have for our Showtime Rotisserie so she grabbed the largest basket and I tried it on the Weber rotisserie shaft... it fits!

Hope to follow up with a cook in the basket in the near future!

There are 2 different types of baskets or charcoal holding devices for a Weber. The one I like is the baskets that holds the charcoal in place in the basket vs the divider that holds it off to the each side. This way I am able to get a 9X13 pan in there to catch the drippings. When doing a turkey it will have Swanson chicken broth to help get the flavor of the roasted turkey and make even more gravy smile

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
