Marinating chicken thighs in jah love jerk overnight per directions , have a few glasses of pappy 15yr watching the playoffs.

What's a good wood to use with the jah love jerk? I have fruit woods then some sugar maple and hickory

It's real deal with pimento wood but what you've got goin sounds really good. I like the idea of mixing hickory w/ fruitwood.

I usually make my own mix but how do you like that one?

I used some white oak (post oak) chunks over some Stubbs on some Jah Love thighs last week. It was some of the best tasting chicken I ever had.

I marinated mine about 24 hours. Then cooked them hot and fast around the Vortex in my kettle. Dome temp was 550 and it took 45 minutes to get the thighs to 165 IT

That seems like a long time ? Why would it take 45 min at over 500 degree?

I was using the Vortex. The chicken was around the outside of the grate. The dome shows really hot with the Vortex because the cone is concentrating the heat upward. By the time the heat circles back down to the grate it is much less hot. I don't have an IR therm so I'm not sure of the temp around the outside of the grate. My guess would be somewhere around 300ish. There is nowhere near as much sizzle when you put the meat on as there would be if you cook direct with the same dome temp. This link shows how the indirect high heat works. Pics show wings but I did the same thing with the Jah Love thighs this time.

Nice score on the Pappy! It's hard to notice anything else with such a fine libation in the picture. I'm sure the chicken, ribs or beef...whatever went well with it. :mrgreen:
