5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

1 egg

1 cup milk

2 gloves garlic

several tablespoons CF Sauer's Montreal style chicken seasoning/rub

1 cup flour

2-3 cups panko bread crumbs




Start your fire and insert racks. Place a cast iron griddle on your top, felt line level grate. Do not use a diverter. Bring your Kamado to 350 degrees & stabilize.


While your kamado is coming up to temperature, get out 3 bowls, and a sheet pan covered with a piece of parchment paper. Take the 2 garlic gloves and grate using a Microplane grater. In one bowl add a cup of flour and salt & pepper to taste, skip the salt if it's an ingredient in your rub. In a second bowl combine milk with 1 egg, beat the egg & milk together. In the third bowl add the panko crumbs, a generous amount of rub, and the microplaned garlic. Mix thoroughly so all 3 ingredients are evenly distributed.


Take each piece of chicken, dredge thoroughly in flour, dip in egg/milk mixture, and then coat thoroughly in panko mixture. Place on sheet pan. When all pieces are coated, place sheet pan in refrigerator ~ 10 minutes to allow panko mix to set.


When you're ready to start the cook, coat your griddle with a generous quantity of olive oil, enough so that you can see it just beginning to pool in a place or two. Use a silicone brush to smooth it evenly over the surface of the griddle. Close your Kamado and wait a minute for the oil to heat up. Once oil is to temp, place the chicken pieces on the griddle, close the kamado cover and cook undisturbed for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes flip the chicken so the other side gets suitably browned. You may want to remove the chicken from the griddle & add  little more oil before cooking the second side, a judgement call on your part. After flipping the chicken cook for another 15-20 minutes.




This is a very flexible recipe as you can give it any flavor profile you want depending on what you mix with the panko. This is an adaptation of a Tyler Florence recipe (you can view the original here) and in his version he uses the garlic mixed with rosemary. This was tasty, but I found (1) using a chicken rub with the garlic, and (2) "frying" on the cast iron griddle, produced a result more in line with what I was looking for. This recipe can also be done in your kitchen oven following the same process; I think  the key for either oven or kamado is cooking on a hot CI griddle. Also, I've only cooked this with boneless/skinless chicken, but there's no reason you can't cook it with chicken pieces with the skin still on, in fact this might make it even better.


Here's the kitchen set up for the coating and dredging:




And the chicken pre-cook:




Oiling the griddle:




Chicken on the griddle:




This pic shows the chicken where I flipped it after 30 minutes (the white looking piece was not yet flipped).




And this pic shows chicken off the grill after 30 minutes on one side, and 10 on the other. The white looking piece I never flipped, it was brown on one side and pale on the other. The light brown piece at the bottom of the pic shows the 10 minute side of one piece, and the dark brown pieces are the 30 min sides. This is why I recommend a flip after 20 minutes in the directions, and suggest adding a touch more oil at the mid point.




Hope anyone who tries this enjoys it!

      First attempt at chicken shawarma last night on the Joetisserie.
      Came out really good, very pleased with the result and so easy. Juicy, tender moist chicken, with gnarled crispy edges.
      Followed Smoking Dad's recipe from his YouTube video.

      Finally pulled the trigger on a Joetisserie and can’t wait to start using it. First up want to do a chicken as that seems simple and easy, but given the two pack Costco sells has anyone done two birds at the same time on a KJ Classic? I’ve searched but haven’t found much Info with people cooking two, other than a picture which seems to be a Big Joe. Seems like it might be tight but should make it as long as they aren’t over 5lbs each. Also wondering if that affects cooking time.

      So this finally happened today (just a few days short of 6 weeks). 
      Since we’re rapidly running out of month, the inaugural cook also happens to be for the Five Ingredient Challenge.  I was inspired by John Setzler’s SloRoller chicken video so I opted for that method.
      Whole chicken
      Red pepper
      Vidalia onion
      Wayward Gourmet Applewood Smoked BBQ Awesomeness
      Salt & Pepper
      Olive Oil

      I did a dry brine on the chicken the night prior.
      Finally fired up the grill and set it for 375.  I swapped sides at about the 35 minute point and bumped the temp up to 425, checked on them after an hour and reduced the temp to 400.  Pulled both at about 80-85 minutes.

      Slow roasted the veggies with some salt & pepper and olive oil in the oven at 350, and finished on the grill.
      True to John’s video, the chicken skin was crispy and the chicken super moist.  My wife’s assessment was ‘the best chicken I’ve ever cooked’ so I consider the first round (of many) a success.

      Hey everyone. Call me Tracksoup. I'm an avid outdoorsman who enjoys hunting and fishing, its a great to know that I've played a part in putting food on the table.  
      A few years ago I saw a BGE and became intrigued with the Kamado cooker. I could never bring myself to spend the $$$ to replace my propane BBQ with a kamado. But after months of saving my pennies to buy a motorcycle, my wife decided that she really didn't want me riding anymore, so I decided this was my opportunity to buy myself a Kamado grill. I did a lot of reading and research about the different kamado grills available (within a reasonable distance from where I live) and made the decision to buy myself a Vision Grills Pro S grill back in April 2020 & I couldn't be happier with my decision to go Kamado.
      Up until now, my only BBQ experience was a propane grill & although I've got a health appetite, the flavour of the food was 'ho-hum'. Since I got my Vision grill, I've grilled everything from venison steaks & burgers, pork sausages, chicken breasts and thighs, I've smoked pork spare ribs and even a low & slow moose roast, there is so much more flavour in the food now & I'm cooking on my kamado way more often than I ever did with the propane BBQ. This thing is awesome!!! 
      While looking for info & tips to familiarize myself with this wonderful cooker, I found Kamadoguru.com about mid-June. There is so much info on this forum & I am enjoying reading through the pages

      2 Chicken half breasts cut into ½-inch strips
      Marinade Ingredients
      1½ Tablespoon of Italian Fusion Seasoning
      1 Cup of garlic infused extra virgin olive oil
      ¼ Cup of balsamic vinegar
      1.  Marinate the chicken strips for at least an hour (longer is fine)
      2.  Preheat the Masterbuilt 1050 to 400° with apple chunks in the ash basket for smoke.
      3.  Grill on Frog Mats until the internal temperature is 160°
      4.  Flip after 8 minutes
      5.  I grilled for 16 minutes and the IT was slightly over 160°
      The 1050 registered 400° but my Fireboard, with the temperature probe within an inch of the Masterbuilt’s probe, but close to and pointed at the cold food, registered closer to 360-365°.
