roksmith started a thread asking which cooker is the best for competition chicken. There were a lot of different answers, but I'm mostly concerned with the WSM. I've always cooked my comp chicken on a Weber Kettle and want to start cooking it on my WSM.
If you have any suggestions or tips for comp chicken on a WSM, please post them here.

Get yourself a Cajun Bandit conversion for that Weber OTS.

I remove the water pan and flip the door over and prop it open with screws (swamprb mod) and can get up to 500 degrees at the grate.

Get a cyber q with a 10cfm fan....that's what we do and it works spectacularly.

Do the WSM door prop mod and you will get screamin' chicken dome temps without a fan draft or removing the waterpan.

I recently modded my Cajun Bandit Stainless steel WSM replacement doors with SS nuts & bolts for props. Three 18" & one 22" bullet turbo cookers and tight assed smokers!

Still prefer the Cajun Bandit converted kettle for chicken.

Whoah! Let the chicken sit at room temp for an hour? That's worrisome to me:icon_blush:

Although the thought of warm chicken also kind makes my stomach turn a little, technically since it went from fridge to cooked in two hours.. it should be fine.
