thinking about picking up a cobb grill for chic cookin at comps this coming year. Hope to fit about 10-12 thighs on it for 6 turn in pieces. Any experience with these grills. I know they cook up to 450 degrees and burn with like 8 briquettes.

I bought one of those a few years ago to use when we went RV'ing. I never liked it because it was way to small to cook on. It did hold temps well and only used 8-10 briquettes. Wife thought it was big enough but I only used it once and put it in the storage bin of the RV. I think I saw it floating around the garage recently, if I can find I will look at it again to see how many thighs fit on it, I don't think very many will. We can probably work out a deal to get you one cheap.:msn-wink:

I would recommend that you look to see what the winners are using for their chix and make oyur choices from among them.

I don't know about the Cobb, but I do know a lot of folks use Webers.

Remember Trav, you will want to cook at least a dozen thighs, so think in terms of what would handle that without overcrowding and still give even cooking across the grate.

thinking the way of the weber, 12.5 inches diameter of cooking space would leave me enuff for 10 thighs but I already got a weber and will start cookin bird with smoke on that. Unless I am offer a good opportunity on a used Cobb grill???? :msn-wink:

You don't want to do your chix on a little Weber. Use the big Weber, and don't worry about how much smoke you put on it.
