Default Hanging Chicken In The WSM (Yeah me too)

Bought me a Pro Q Stacker off of the Intewebs and put it on my Weber. Not thrilled with the lid fit, but I can mess with that later.



Made 4 hooks out of a cheap pack of skewers and have 4 halves hanging right now running about 290*



I took one of my old grates and just cut out the bars that I didn't need.

I took those pics in a hurry so I'll try to get better ones of the finished product.

Thanks. If this works out well, this will probably become my chicken rig for IBCA comps.

That was my plan also, to cut an old Weber grate to hang the food in my drum. I have the grate and the hooks and the chickens, I just need to do it!

They're resting now so I'll know in a few minutes!





They look good and the juice is pouring out of them without even being cut!

What is the advantage to hanging the chickens? Is there more smoke contact?

Well the verdict is that hanging the birds with no water pan in place produced a really juicy chicken. I wish that I could figure out a way to get the breast skin to render. Its always thicker and fattier. I never have trouble with the wing or leg quarter skin.

But I am sold on hanging for now!



Even the white meat was juicy!

If I knew I would sure tell ya. But based on this cook and many others on here there definitely seems to be something to it.

Is chicken your first experiment? I'm wondering how ribs, brisket and pork would turn out.

Chicken looks good! Have you considered jakarding (sp?) the skin on the breast?

Talk to me more about the hanging process. Have any pics of them hanging. Did you only do thighs and breast? I cant imagine all cuts would accept a hook very well. Could you hang a whoIe chicken

Edit..Never mind.. Now see the pics

Great looking chicken. I wonder if the stack is even necessary, given the PBC results posted here.
