Last Day of Vacation Cook

Our vacation was really nice and really needed, but I am glad to get back home. The last days were with friends in St Louis and while I was there, I went to a local grill store and scored three bottles of Uncle Henry rubs, a bottle of Blues Hog BBQ sauce and some mulberry wood for smoking.

We got home early afternoon and I just had to cook something, so decided on a spatchcocked chicken, seasoned with DP, Pineapple Head and smoked with some pecan that I picked up while in Arkansas! WOW! I think that pecan has moved to my favorite wood!

I added a sweet potato for a side.


We added a salad of tomatoes, feta cheese, basil and parsley, with a vinegar and oil dressing. PDG!


Here we are all plated.


The leftover chicken is going in a hot dip tomorrow night!!

    Man, that looks good. How did you cook your 'tater :silly: (temp, time, etc.)

    I just washed it and layed it on the grill at the same time as the chicken. I was running about 350 for most of the cook. I lost track of time, but think it was a little over 2 hours. The chicken was done, but wanted to crisp up the skin in the last 20 minutes, so I pushed it to 400.

    As you can see, I was cooking on a raised grid. I never turned the chicken.

    The potato was a little undercooked, so I finished it with 3 minutes in the microwave.

    I've never tried a potato on the egg, but I will now!

    They are good any way you do them!

    Regular baked, like I did tonight.

    Wedges coated with EVOO and your favorite rub.

    New potatoes coated in EVOO and S&P or rub.

    1/2" sweet potato slices, coated in EVOO and S&P or rub.

    I've done it just the opposite! I've started the potatoes in the microwave and finished on the Egg.

    Very good!

    I agree that giving potatoes a head start in the microwave works well! In this case, I thought I had enough time for them to get done, but the temp was a little too low.
