Now, I wish I had a photo but I nuked the chicken! When I went to check on it the skin was totally black. I think my charcoal placement wasn’t the best for the Joetisserie, the smoking wood must have caught and burnt the chicken. Ben Forte gave me some tips that I will follow next time: Charcoal down one end, sometimes put a foil tray in. So rather than both sides like in the Napoleon or Weber kettles it’s better to have one pile away from the meat.

However, all was not lost. The skin came off quite easily and left behind some very tasty and juicy meat. The dark meat in particular was spectacular.

The white meat was awesome too.

The chicken tasted fantastic even after I burnt the outside! I will need to get another one and do it properly to see if it tastes even better. Learning lessons on the Joetisserie, always good to learn and improve.
