WSM 18": Maiden Voyage & It's a hanging one
« on: July 20, 2018, 05:12:05 AM »
Having purchased the hanging rack for my 22" and never getting round to using it.

A few recent posts gave me the motivation and having ordered the gateway hanging rack for my most recent used acquisition.  I decided that I'd  pop two cherries at once with my first use of an 18" WSM and my first foray into hanging meats

Coal: Briquettes, 135 Total (yes I'm that sad and counted),  30 lit and poured over the top.
Smoke: Alder/Apple one chunk of each
Temps: Circa 250f, with a fair few spikes over 300f

Two chickens halved (Hooked)
Lamb Shoulder 1.2kg (Hooked)
Chicken wings 1.2 kg (15" hanging skewer)

Turned out alrite for a first attempt.

Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

This is probably a dub

This is probably a dumb question. When hanging meat like that does the lid still fit on. Finger hit wrong button

Thanks Mike, very distinct flavour profile and they were super moist. Defo a winner
