First test - Garlic Roast Chicken & Corn On The Cob

Post  colin.irwin on Wed Jul 15, 2009 5:08 pm

I got my Frontier this afternoon - along with 20 kg of coconut briquettes.

Assembly was easy - I've got the fire going and it's holding a steady 230 to 240 F

I dropped fresh rosemary and bay leaves into the water bath. I'm not sure if it will add flavour but it smells great as it vents out of the top of the smoker.

I chopped up 6 cloves of garlic mixed with half a stick of butter, fresh thyme and my home made dry rub. That's all been pushed under the skin of the chicken and I've sealed the skin back up with a skewer. I've also sprayed oil & cider on the skin and sprinkled with more dry rub.

The chicken has been in for half an hour so far.

The corns on the cob are soaking in their husks - In about an hour I'll peel the husk back, stick butter in and then close the husk back up. I'll bung them in the smoker for the last 90 minutes or so of cooking time.

Fingers crossed - but I think it's going to be a good first cook on the Frontier.

Here it is.



The Quasimodo hump was where the butter & garlic stuffing puffed up under the skin.

The chicken was delicious, as was the sweetcorn.

Nice colour to it Colin.
Looks like the band slipped up, causing the hump Wink

Perhaps the Chicken 'had the hump' with being cooked?

Sorry, bad joke
