Got one of those fancy Traeger pellet grill / smoker with WiFi. As I mentioned in the profile posts, this is cheating. It's impossible for fuck up, at least for this type of grilling / smoking. Some say this is sacrilegious. I would have said so myself if I were younger. However, I'm too old now to learn the intricacies of a new grill and just don't have the energy to use my Force BBQ skills. There are still certain aspects of the Egg which I miss, such as being able to smoke the shit outta the entire neighborhood, but the Traeger is a million times easier. I don't have to replenish fuel, I don't have to deal with a water pan, I don't have to use the Force to control the temps, I don't have to check with a thermometer several times during a long cook. The pellet grill does it all. The most difficult things (still easy) with the Traeger 575 Pro: calibrating the temperature probe and getting a nice low temp for a "super" smoke - which just involves the need to wait until the evening when ambient temps lower (otherwise hard to get below 200F). I calibrated the probe using the Force using chicken and beef, knowing how the meat is supposed to be like at 165F and 135F respectively when I take the temps manually. In the end, I opted for -4F calibration. For those who prefer science, there is also a procedure involving ice and water and an automatic calibration. This below was a screw up. I intended to up the temps to 500 degrees and then drop it down to 225. Well, I got stuck in two meetings for work and kinda forgot about it. I thought I had burnt it, but nope - quite juicy and perfect for the meat. A little burnt on the skin near the wings, but the rest is quite good. I dislike chickens which are too juicy. In a prior attempt, I used an open beer can to prop up the chicken and it came out way too moist. This time I actually split the chicken in two halves. This tells me that the Traeger has powahs that can seal in the moisture. I'm sure the more humid weather in Corpus helps too. Here is the secret behind the Traeger - no direct heat. This saved my ass in this situation.
