3rd test drive on the Joe (Chicken)

Recommended Posts

So yesterday i had my third go at the Kamado Joe. this time i decided to cook a chicken "Portuguese Style" 

as i would call it "Frango no Churrasco". I used one of the deflector plates only since i was going to also cook a Porterhouse 

and , I also wanted to put the chicken in direct heat after i was sure it was cooked properly. I cooked it at about 300 Deg for about 

5 hours over the deflector plate. Again the Kamado maintained the temperature pretty much on the dime. i opened the Kamado probably 

3-4 times so that i could baste the chicken as it was cooking. Once i started cooking the Porterhouse i also put the chicken on the 

same side as the steak to get a nice crispiness to it. I think it came out excellent and my family agreed with me. My wife actually made

some chicken salad with the remaining chicken for me to eat today. I have added some pictures so that you can see the outcome.

feel free to comment.

 

thanks

I'm not sure the size of the bird. I really wanted to make sure it was very well cooked. I like the outside to be very crispy. I can tell you it fell off the bone. I'm sure I could have cooked it quicker but it was my first go at it and I had  enough time.

Interesting cook.

 

Five hours at 300 would yield a scorched bird on my grills.

 

 

An instant-read thermometer is a great tool to have.  You'll always know when you are safe.

yes I agree,haven't purchased one yet. I am thinking of getting the Flame boss, kill to birds with one shot lol. I will get an instant read one also, just been too busy to do research on them.

I've heard good thing about both thermapen and thermoworks, but if I get the Flame Boss I think the thermoworks smoke would just be redundant since I will be able to read the pit temp as well as the meat temp with the FB.

+1 on the Thermapen. Though you can save some money and get the Thermopop which is also an excellent thermometer only 1-2 seconds slower
