  • Re: Hanging chicken legs advise pls

    Definitely agree with 40 to 45 minutes max as you should start checking temps in 35 minutes. If you use smoking wood be  careful as these will absorb plenty. However I put my veggies ontop.

     Direct or indirect?  Burned ribs yesterday direct.

    I go direct when hanging chicken legs and is why it only takes around 35 to 45 minutes at 375-400 dome.   I also go direct on raised grid when doing spatchcock chicken at 375-400 dome temp for about 50 to 60 minutes.   I use Adjustable Rig from CGS compared to a nearly clean looking plate setter I've had for about 10 years.

    Ribs should be indirect and I agree that the Adjustable Rig from Ceramic Grill Store is the place to go as their products are amazing and versatile .  They even have sliding racks with oval shaped stones to protect your entire rack of ribs.
