    So I began this quest with the mindset that I was going to try and duplicate Myron's "Cupcake Chicken" from the BBQ Pitmasters Show on TLC. Come to find out I did not have muffin pans that were big enough to fit the chicken in. So I knew from there that I was doomed.

    I cut up the chicken like Myron does, small and square.



    So I decided that I wanted more then just one flavor of chicken this weekend so I did one BBQ and another teriyaki. For the BBQ I used one of my personal rubs and the kikomans teriyaki marinade for the other.





    After letting them both rest overnight I put them into the GOSM with hickory chunks. I also threw in there some Cajun sausage to make life a little better.



    While that was cooking, I started to prep the shrimp skewers. I seasoned one with some of the BBQ Seasoning that Rivet gave to me, some Cajun seasoning that Cajunsmoke13 gave me and the rest with a glaze that I made.





    Once the chicken was ready to come off I fired up the grill to get the chicken crispy. I topped the BBQ one with some Curly's BBQ sauce and just let the other be.



    Finally we can eat!



    I was not that big of a fan of the teriyaki chicken but the BBQ one burst out with flavor! The shrimp came out great! And the sausage was delicious!
    I am going to have to give "Cupcake Chicken" a try another time... But for now... That's all folks!
     
  2. Great lookin dinner! One question, did you smoke the shrimp or cook them on the grill while crisping the chicken?

    Nice job!

    I actually did the shrimp on the grill. The wife was complaining about how long everything was taking and that she was hugry.

    I think they took quite well... You can do so much with shrimp! It's great!


    Thanks guys for all the feedback!

    Good grief Tony, you did a geat job on this smoke! Where was it hiding? Loved the chicken/shrimp combo and that Cajun sausage looked mighty fine too. Glad it worked out well and you all enjoyed your feast, 'cause I sure enjoyed the Q-Vue!
