Split about a dozen pieces of 1" diameter sugar cane to use for smoking a chicken. Set up the XL for an indirect cook and stabilized at 400*. Rubbed a whole chicken with butter and added Tony Chachere's. Put the sugar cane on top of the lump and started smokin. Took about 1 hr and 15 minutes. The skin looks ugly and burnt - it's not. The skin is crispy and outstanding and the meat is real juicy. My best chicken yet - my bride says this has to be a weekly item. I'm going to cut up a bunch of sugar cane and freeze in ziplocks to use later.
