View Full Version : Getting prepared for my noon day cook.

10-11-2014, 12:45 AM
Later today I am cooking some chicken leg quarters for my maiden voyage on my rehabbed Oklahoma Joe for a small get together. I trimmed them up and removed the backbone from the end (using that towards stock later). I pulled the skin back and seasoned with a nice dusting of kosher salt, Everglades regular seasoning, and Everglades Rub. I found the Everglades Rub in a local market in central Florida on a family trip and really like the sweet heat that it imparts on the meat. I replaced the skin and gave another light dusting of the above seasonings to finish everything off. I will post some pictures later as the cook progresses.

Well I got it started, we were having a good time and got delayed at starting but here it is on the pit after about 30 minutes. I am cooking this one low and slow because that is what they want. They know all about rubbery skin and all. I am running a dome temp of 300 which is giving me a grate temp of 230 until I get to do a couple of more mods to help it out. But once it locks in this baby is rock steady.

Getting ready to pull them for a brief rest before they get devoured. To my surprise the skin feels nice and crisp, not rubbery at all like I was thinking it would turn out.

Big Bob, Curious. I like to grill my Cornell style chicken at 375 - 450. How long did this take at the 300 temp?

It was right at 2 hours cook time. My grate temp was right around 250 give or take a few.
