Direct or indirect? Thanks!!! this forum is the best.


  • grEgg,
    you can go either way... .i go indirect at 350 degrees (takes about 1 1/2 hours for a good size roaster (4 1/2 pounds). . ..let the heat go up the last 15 minutes or so to crisp the skin. .. .[p]those who advocate going direct i think get them done a little quicker and with crispier skin. .. .[p]HTH . . .

    grEgg,[p]When I do mine I do em direct at about 250 with Cajun Seasoning.[p]I'll betcha there are a lot folks who do em indirect as well.[p]You may want to bump up the temp at the end to crisp up the skin.[p]Keep em Smokin,

  • fishlessman,
    ...and you found a use for Bud Light!

    Essex County,
    at the time i thought so, but then tried a gingerale. gingerale is better with the chicken. not sure what to do with those bud lights, they been kicking around in the fridge since i bought the house over 5 years ago. whoever gave them to me, thanks for the house warming gift

  • fishlessman,
    Put them in the freezer. They make excellent ice packs. And if you get really thirsty, they taste the same no matter how many times you've used them.
