Vortex Fried Chicken
« on: July 14, 2016, 05:13:00 PM »
Triple dipped,  beer battered "fried" chicken with a kettle and a vortex and some hickory. Crispy as any fried chicken I've ever had

I seasoned with Owens Bbq Buffalo wing, then followed this recipe for the rest. But instead of fried I did them on the kettle around a full vortex with a chunk of hickory til an IT of 175 in legs and thighs and 170 in breasts

That looks delicious! Thank you for the idea, I would have never thought of trying to "fry" something on a grill.

Whoa, intriguing.... Can this be done without a vortex?

I was thinking charcoal baskets filled with lump would suffice.
@bigmikey What temp and time where these on?

Would it be necessary to brush these with oil post batter to encourage crisping up?

Wow ! ! !  That is way better than anything I've done with wings. 

Going to trying your method on my next cook.
