OK so I got my table done, got the feet, have gotten used to the temp control. We had some chickie breasts, corn and broccoli..

Chick pounded, then brined for about 45mins:
Got some corn from the stand, I soak a paper towel with water and some sugar and wrap in foil:
My wife requested a strawberry daiquiri:
My new table and not-so-new guard-dog:
Chicks on my new CI grate:

Had the broccoli and corn on for awhile ahead of the chicken, wonderful stuff. Finished the breasts with some Maurice's... Thanks again for all the info supplied here!

    Great pics! I think you've got the chicken down pat - good looking meal. :)

    PS - unfortunately, you are right - there is no dumbass vaccine. :laugh: :silly:

    Tim great set up ya got there including the security system! ;) Really nice cook. Next time try the corn in the shuck. Really easy just peal the shuck down and remove silk, soak whole thing about 30 min. then dry corn, rub with EVOO and seasoning (I prefer Tony's) & pull the shuck back around the corn and tie end with cotton string or ifs ya want to be fancy with husk strips tyed togeather. I cook indirect at like 325 for an hour. Don't get hung up on time and temps I give as I don't pay that much attention to them so this is estimated ;) Really nice roasted flavor.

    Thanks- I've done a modified version of that corn program you suggest but the family always wants at it no-fuss/no muss hadn't thought about getting rid of the silk at that step. I've just soaked and thrown the whole ear on which makes for some heartache come plate time. Might just have to give that a try Sunday. :)
