BBQ'ing Chicken: UDS or Weber Kettle
 
If you owned only a Weber Kettle and a UDS, which would you prefer to BBQ your chicken on?

I know you can crisp up the skin pretty well on the lower grate of a UDS with fire cranked up a bit with no diffuser.

I normally do my chicken on the kettle, 2 zone setup, as long as you have room for all the chicken you are cooking.

I prefer mine on the kettle. Then again I prefer to use my kettle over my UDS for a majority of cooks because it is easier to setup and get going.

I'd defer to my mini for chicken...turns out the best chicken on the PLANET. If i couldn't do it on the mini then i'd go to the Jimmy or UDS. It's almost over kill firing up the UDS for only a chicken but for even cooking and temp control it's higher quality Q than on the kettle.

Don't get me wrong...the kettle is a trooper and a versatile cooker but the cover has been on it for a long time since the mini's came into the picture.

I do mine on a kettle.

UDS for me, crispy skin is a breeze. Kosher salt, cook at 325. I always cook 2 so the swaping racks in the bullet was a pain. The Acorn does a good job, but the UDS does an even better job for me and easier to clean.

Yep...kettle it is. I like chicken cooked at higher temps.

As long as as there is room for the amount of chicken, kettle all the way!!!!!

Kettle for me too. I've turned out some of my best chicken ever on the OTS. I call it my chicken cooking machine.

Depends upon what type of chicken and how much.

Few pieces for the family I just use the Weber. But when we cook chicken for our club picnic we buy pre seasoned chicken that just needs to be heated through, so I fill up a couple UDS on all the shelves.

How do you cook your chicken on your mini? Do you do it without a diffuser? I've done chicken on the mini but the skin was rubbery.

If you have a 22.5 kettle, buy a rotisserie kit for it. I have the Cajun Bandit rotisserie kit, and it makes the most amazing whole chickens. I brine my birds overnight, and put them on the spit for 60-90 minutes, depending on the size.

Here is how I set up the kettle...

With 6 kids, I never could get enough meat on the kettle, so it's the UDS for me.
