Now I done votin' can get on with other important stuff.Question,been cooking up several whole chickens(one at a time),had them brined, marinated, and setting on wire chicken rack in shallow drip pan on fire bricks. Temp at 300° steady,polder in left thigh,(toward left side of EGG).Temp hit 172 after about 40 min.Checked right thigh with small ponder,it read 140.Thought probe might be squirreley so checked left side with small polder,it read about 175, pulled probe out and put it in right thigh,it read about 145. Either got a left legged chicken OR a left sided hot spot.Coals looked pretty even,drip pan seemed fairly centered on grill,any ideas? Can't handle kinda undone chicken.THNX Bob
