Vortex Thighs

Postby Smoking Piney » Sat Jun 23, 2018 6:43 pm

A gray and cool day here in the house of Piney. Time for some thighs. :D

My old, trusty kettle has been an absolutely killer chicken cooking machine after I bought the Vortex. :D

The thighs are rubbed with Mad Max's Turkey rub (just awesome on chicken) and on the Vortex with a couple of hickory chunks for smoke:

Flipped about 20 minutes a side and my wife's pieces were ready - she doesn't like sauce.

I sauced mine with Stubbs Original and let the sauce set about 5 minutes:

Killer! :D

It's an aftermarket piece - a steel cone to contain the coals and radiate heat around the grill.

It turned my Weber into a mean chicken cooking machine. :D
