Nice bird! Whatcha got on there?♨️

 

Just some home-made dry rub on both sides of a butterfly'd chicken (coarse salt, freshly ground tellicherry pepper, lemon zest from 2 lemons grated from a micro-planer, dehydrated garlic, dehydrated onion, and a dash of some spices - oregano, paprika, cinnamon, etc.) It was cooked direct but low in the 250-275F range for 45 minutes, and then I ran the temp up to 325F for the last 15 minutes to render out the remaining fat from the skin.

Sounds really nice Charlie!

 

I will one day upgrade my Akorn Kamado at my mountain house, but I need to wear that Kamado out some more first. I greatly prefer the smoother and more reliable temperature control of my Saffire Kamado at my RI house, and also the larger work surface of its matching teak table. I would clearly want to get another Saffire setup, however, rather than going for one single bigger Kamado, I think I would rather have two standard size Kamados set side by side in one table so I could smoke and cook direct simultaneously. Plus, two regular size Kamados will be easier to carry up onto the deck at that house. Please mention to the Saffire folks when you speak with them that there could be some demand for double Kamado cook-tables. I know that some other Kamado companies already make double tables...
