My landing at the side of the house was too small.
It's a great location - sliding doors just off the kitchen.
Here are some stock photos from about 5-6 yrs ago.



I could just squeeze my gasser and ECB on it.

With my recently finished UDS and
recently purchased Weber 22½" Kettle,
It needed to get bigger!





Pulled a frozen chicken the night before (about 3½ lbs).
Quartered it and brined it for 2, maybe 3 hours.
Brine was 2½ Litres of water and ⅓ cup Kosher salt.

One breast and wing I left naked without any rub.
The other breast got this. It's very good with chicken.


The two other quarters (drumstick/thigh) got this.
I brought this home from Barbados. It's very hot! Cool




I decided to placate the ECB as it was feeling neglected.
Three pieces of apple wood.



Pretty much 2 hours later, it was ready to come off.



It may look burnt, but didn't taste burnt.

Plated with some rice and locally grown fresh green beans.
This was an awesome meal!!


Thanks to Hell Fire Grill for the inspiration to make a lump charcoal sifter.
I used a small amount of lump (very small pieces),
and lit 15 briquettes and scattered them on top.

Stay cool! Cool

Mark

Nice lookin' deck MacEggs. As mentioned get a sealer on that baby. Maybe 2 or 3 coats to start.
That yard bird looks great. I'm gonna hunt around or order some of that jerk. I can't find any good stuff around here.
Where are you gonna put your BGE, 22.5" WSM and Rancher kettle at? Wink
Should have built a bigger deck. Shocked

I must admit, that's some mighty fine looking chicken, and I think I'll give that seasoning a try as well.

Nice job!
So what does the Kirklands seasoning taste like? Or do you have the ingredient list?
Thanks.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

brdprey: that seasoning really lends itself well to chicken,
especially since some salt comes from the brining

Jarhead: I still consider it a "landing".
Ultimately we want a patio out back.
Right now it's too hot to sit out back.
When it does come time, the mosquitoes come calling. Crying or Very sad
I brought that jerk seasoning back from Barbados in February.
Here's a link.
http://www.delishproducts.com/

Forkin Pork: it's great seasoning for chicken.
Sometimes I grind it up - too lazy this time. Confused

k.a.m.: Thank you very much, as always! Cool

Kevin Randolph: Thanks dude Exclamation

1buckie : No more room, dude.
Then I have to store them in the garage
as that deck/landing is usually covered in 2' of snow come December.
Ya, my Abby Normal ECB has a huge personality. Shocked Wink

Awning Guy: and the first runner up is.......? Laughing

Oregon smoker: I really like this seasoning with chicken!
Here's the ingredients in order (each one says organic):
onion, garlic, herbs {?}, carrot, black pepper, red bell pepper, tomato,
spices {?}, orange peel, lemon peel, red pepper, citric acid.
Hope this helps. Smile

suckaass: Thanks man. Now I just need an Awning to give it some shade.
Anybody know someone Question Idea Wink

Big Bears BBQ: Thanks dude. I took a little longer with all this heat. Cool

Nice job MacEggs. You guys must have zero lot line restrictions up there. Fire all those puppies up and smoke your neighbor right out of his house.

Where do you pee outside? Shocked Razz

I have some that Kirklands Organic no-salt seasoning here, I kinda like it myself, it seems to go pretty good on almost everything with the exception of a meat loaf I did, it had a somewhat off taste but I'm still not sure it was the seasoning,the meat (which didn't have a bad smell) or the onion soup mix, but yeh, all in all it's pretty good. Nice looking addition and tasty looking chicken as well.

Very cool, and food looks great. Ok so at the risk of catching it all around I am going to ask a very newb question what does UDS stand for I know it is the 55 gallon drum type smoker but never have known anyone that actually has one or been around one and curious what the letters stand for.

purplewg: my neighbour recently quit smoking cigarettes after 49 yrs - I guess a little wood smoke wouldn't hurt him now Shocked
How did you get my x-whyfe to pose for your avatar? A nice wholesome Canadian girl Laughing
I still go into a trance when I see it Confused Rolling Eyes Wink

Geronimo: I have to flip a coin as to which one(s) I will use.
The gasser usually loses out now. Surprised

mactoo: Thanks mac, it was all worth it Exclamation

Old Smoker: I either use that seasoning now, or go naked with chicken Shocked Brining is the key.

TDW1980: Thanks dude. 1buckie is one step ahead - thanks buddy!
Build a UDS, you will not regret it. Smile
