First cook on an akorn assembled on Sunday. Chicken legs at 450 F for 45 minutes with garlic, rosemary, salt and some olive oil. Never done chicken at that high a temp before. Wanted to try something simple for my initial foray. At the last moment I realized the grill I was going to use for my indirect heat level wasn't big enough. I put my pan on the main grill and used the auxiliary rack to hold the legs. Skin was really good and crispy and insides were perfect. One thing I liked is I could easily see the progress by looking in the top vent. Flew blind on this one. Temperature monitor should be arriving tomorrow.
Finally got a chance to test drive my Cabela's Leg & Wing rack in my Akorn kamado. I smoked the chicken legs (marinated overnight with Oakridge Secret Weapon) for two hours at 265 degrees, then pulled my diffuser, cranked the temperature, and finished them on the grate with some marinated BBQ shrimp. Yum.
