About a year ago, I wrote about how I made, or more accurately tried to make, a rotisserie chicken on our grill. It was a huge disaster. I stepped away from the grill for about 10 minutes and was hanging out in the front yard. From the front yard, I could see white smoke floating up the back of the house.
I ran to the back and saw my chicken engulfed in flames. It was totally charred. It was a complete waste.
Over Memorial Day weekend, we had a totally different experience with grilling. We were invited to some friends’ house for a bbq. He was going to make a pork shoulder and chicken.
He was going to smoke it and cook it all day.
The party was to start at 4 p.m. so I was surprised to run into Peter at our neighborhood pool when he was supposedly bbq-ing this pork shoulder.
So I approached Peter and asked him if he was still going to cook the pork shoulder. He confirmed that he was. In fact, he hadplaced it into the grill at 9 a.m. and projected that it would be done at 5 p.m.
I was impressed that he was so confident with his time estimate and was able to leave the the food unattended.
Then Peter shared with me that he had a thermometer that was connected to an app on his phone. He entered into the app the size of the meat, meat type, and the desired end time. Then the app provided the necessary temperature. The app relied on a thermometer in the grill that was relaying the temperature to Peter.
The final product was delicious. Actually, it was AMAZING.
