Beli's Pollo a la Naranja

Tonight I tried (tried, as in I didn't follow the directions properly) the Cherry-smoked pollo a la naranja that Beli recently posted. I used thighs instead of breasts. I wasn't sure what to do with the serrano peppers for the marinade, so I cored and chopped them. I closed the dome during the sear part of the cook which caused me to struggle getting a lower temp for the second part. :blush:
After the hot sear and now in the second (orange juice) marinade:

"Roasting" and being basted with the OJ:

Also, cooking after dark using a flashlight in my teeth since there is no electricity yet on my under-construction porch.
Final product:

Despite the buffoonery, the meal was a hit. Princess Jana thought it turned out great, so "what can I say"? :woohoo: Of course, most any edible meal that she doesn't have to cook is great in her opinion. :ohmy: :silly:

Thanks, Beli. Will definitely be in my "repeat performance" file. :woohoo:

    Clark,
    Food looks great! Beli is a helluva cook and its nice to see folks reaping the rewards :)

    You should head over to the nearest sporting goods shop and grab a cheap headlamp. I use mine all the time with the eggs. I have a grill light and still end up using headlamp most of the time.

    Cory - good idea and in fact, I have one somewhere that I use when duck hunting.

    The porch should be finished up soon and based on a suggestion from Doug (Sparky), I will put 4 track lights above the 2 eggs in crossing patterns. Hopefully, that will eliminate any shadows.

    Thanks.

    I looked for the recipe and did not see it. Can you point me in the right direction?

    TIA

    Thanks. I hope it will help keep me from creating my own shadows over the grill!

    Thanks, Beli.
