    Smoked some chicken legs in a bath of sweet Asian sauce, the base of which was soy sauce. Pretty tasty

    love to smoke chicken...almost constantly...there is a Safeway where i live, that has these rubbed chicken wings, 3 flavors they do are carribean jerk, chipoltle brown sugar and buffalo style, and they are always in the clearance rack...it is impossible for me to see them and leave them...so a grab all they have, smoke them for 3 hours at 225, cover them for about an hour or so while they settle...then seal them for use later...30 seconds in the micro-wave knocks the cold off, and set them next to a salad...i do this with everything i can find in the clearance area, everything i can smoke i mean!!

    Do they even get much smoke in a tray like that? Id think it would block it.

    They got plenty if smoke! So much that I would even back off the hickory or use a lighter wood like peach or cherry next time!


    I think it was:
    1 cup soy sauce
    1/2 cup evoo
    3/4 cup sugar, I used about 1/2 dark brown and 1/2 white
    1 onion, minced
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    Threw it all in the bullet blender to mix it up.threw the sauce and legs in a plastic bag to marinate for 1/2 day and then out the legs and sauce in the foil pan. Gave them a light dusting of rub (I think I used Jeff's run).Preheat the hasty to about 275 and pulled the when they hit about 170 degrees. Used fist sized hickory chunks throughout the cooking process.

    Alright another Hasty aficionado!  I love smoking/baking wings on my hasty then tossing in wing sauce, a butter and tiger sauce mixture is great.

    There are very few things I love more than my hasty bake, STL Cardinal baseball being one of them. I am searching diligently for a vintage hasty to add to collection. My uncle has a like new unit from the 70's that hasn't been cooked in in probably 2 decades. It's sitting covered in his shed. He refuses to sell it to me!!!!
     
  13. Ye, I( saw that our Canadian Hardware Store, Home Hardware, had a Chicken Drum Stick rack, a device that hold chicken legs upside down so you can cook them. It was 5 bucks and change.  That is a good deal for something like this.

     
  14. Such a fabulous little apparatus!! Cheers! - Leah
     
  15. Oh my, that looks heavenly.  I have a Hasty Bake as well:  a late 70's suburban I got from the flea market last fall.  It's my favorite cooker to grill on.  I haven't smoked anything on it yet but am going to start doing that.  I usually use my Mini WSM, WSM, GMG Davy Crockett & recently acquired Bandera for smoking.

    Here is a photo of my Hasty along with my two WSM:
