I tried this Yesterday.

The KFC chicken turned out pretty good with the Slow N Sear. I messed up though and didn't use egg yolk in the batter. I just used some flour and seasoning. I didn't have any beer or sparkling water so I used Sprite. I think it made the mixture ok.

I did two mixtures. One with flower and SPG seasoning another with just Mama Autry Chicken Seasoning.

I only did the dipping twice like the video recommended. Did the batter first then the flour. The Chicken got a little over floury but still tasted great. I used too much SPG seasoning so the chicken was overly salty but what calmed the salt flavor down and ended up making the chicken fantastic was honey butter which was recommended in the video. Melted half a stick of butter with about a tablespoon of honey and brushed that on the chicken.

The crunch on the chicken was amazing. My plan was to make these Sunday and eat them tonight. Well the family tried one piece and decided that's what was for dinner last night. haha. None left.

I love breaded meat on the grill...
I just rub the chicken with olive oil and then use House Autry Med Hot breading...Vortex does the rest...
Who needs fried...

Here's the recipe from the description in the video.

I put the Vortex up against the Slow N Sear to make a batch of KETTLE FRIED CHICKEN.

FIRST BOWL: 3.5 cups of flour, 4 tablespoons of Little Louies Garlic Salt with Black Pepper (or 2tbl salt, 1tbl garlic powder, 1 table pepper, 1tbl papryka)
SECOND BOW: 1 cup flower, 1 can of beer, 1tbl of whichever seasoning you choose. 2 egg yolks

Cook for 45min.

Thanks for taking the time to write that up @BBQFiend What purpose do the egg yolks serve in the wet batter and can it be removed/substituted? My daughter has egg allergies

I think the yolk helps the batter stick to the chicken better. My chicken was pretty well coated without the eggs. You have to get the right consistency with the wet batter is all. You could probably use mustard instead of eggs in the batter. Not sure how much of a taste would transfer over. I've read that some people cover their ribs with it and the taste doesn't transfer over.
