Spun up Chicken cook

<p />Egged a 4.5 lb free-range chicken for lunch yesterday. I rubbed it with Dizzy Pig Tsunami Spin Thursday morning but didn’t cook it until Friday due to accepting a dinner invite. (Turned out to be a big mistake, bland food and very inappropriate remarks from the host to the GF.) My setup was inverted plate setter with grid on top. I used my Weber “beer can” roaster with a Coors Beer someone left in the refrigerator and about a teaspoon of rub. Added a piece of wood that was sitting out from my last cook. Turned out to be Hickory. [p]Cooked at a grid temperature of 250-260 (290-300 dome) until the breast was about 150, then bumped up the temperature about 20 degrees for 30 minutes to crisp up the skin a little. Got distracted so the breast was 175+ when I pulled it off. I normally cook to a breast temp of 160 – 165. Total cook time was about two hours. Result was a great tasting, moist bird. [p]Next time, I’m going to use apple or alder wood for smoke.
