Well, we received our Auspit earlier this week and have a chicken soaking in brine. We will crank up our Weber at five today. We will use charcoal and Mesquite, an aromatic desert wood. We hope to eat at about 7:00 pm. We are in the central time zone, USA.

Wish us luck, and all advice is welcomed.

Happy trails,

The Sundowners

Welcome Sundowners!

I hope you have a great cook session! It is too late for this time around, but one of my favorite things to do is put a lemon in the cavity with a sliver cut out of four sides.  It keeps the chicken from flopping around and gives a great flavor and moisture to the meat.  I have been planning to post this with pictures et al for some time, but...  I will get to it soon!

Anyway welcome to the Auspit community!

Here is the first try. It was delicious!

Here is the process.

Brine chicken for four hours.
Stuff chicken with a whole onion and one strip of bacon.
Baste chicken with Maple syrup with season salt cut with water by 50%

We didnít get our fire hot enough for a while but we finally got things right. We cooked over fire until internal temperature of chicken was 158 degrees f. Finished in a microwave to 165 degrees F.

Took us a total of about 2 hours and 45 minutes to finish.

We will be closer to the fire and a hotter fire next time.

Note: I had a couple of pictures, but I can't figure out how to post them. Would someone direct me to the directions for pictures.

Happy trails,

The Sundowners

Feel for you Sundowners, sometimes getting the fire hot enough is the biggest mission.

That chook sounds mouthwatering, any luck with pictures yet?
