I Love my Weber grill - Cornell chicken

cb1 | Jul 30, 2010 06:17 PM

I bought a Weber kettle grill about ten years ago. I fell in love with it, and swore I would only use my gas grill during the week when time was short. Well over the years, I seem to have used my trusty Weber less and less. Last year I didn't fire it up at all....Well the unthinkable happened this spring. I found myself out of gas which is unacceptable because I have two tanks, when one runs out switch tanks and get the empty refilled. Guess I didn't stay on top of that. So to finish up the steaks I was cooking, I fired up the Weber. I realized how much I missed my grill. I've been using it exclusively since. Trying new things, getting more into smoking things with my Weber.....feel like I've found an old best friend. Where I need help with is, I've been trying to get down the Cornell chicken recipie. If you've never had it, you're missing out. I used to stop on my way down to the beach at the local Kiwanas or VFD who slow cook their chicken the Cornell way....mighty tasty, and I just can't seem to repicate it. I can get the flavor with marinating boneless chicken....but whole chickens I haven't had much I smoke if, or just indirect cook it.......they use open grills with whole chickens split down the middle....I just can't seem to get it. I get close, and my family loves it....but I know it's not "IT" if that makes sense. Any help or tips would be appreciated. BTW, have I told you I love my Weber...LOL
