A cast iron skillet can be used in many ways today and here we use one to make a one pot meal. With a 12″ skillet a 4 lb chicken a host of veggies we start out to make a bbq feast. We add a few chunks of cherry and oak wood for flavor.
We started out with a 4 lb whole chicken raised patted dry . We seasoned inside a out with bohemian spice salt that jr picked up in the bahamas while on his honeymoon. We then went for our cast iron skillet which we greased with EVOO. We placed the chicken in middle and around the bird we adddc yukon gold potatos, red peppers, onions, brussle sprouts and mushrooms that were seasoned with the same spice used on the chicken. We brought our smoker up to 300 degrees. Two and a 1/2 hrs later, we had our perfectly cooked chicken and veggies now mixing with the chicken fat veggies were excellent. Even jr liked the veggies cooking in the chicken fat with the island spices. We took our favorite bbq sauce and added a little butter and some mango jam from the islands into a pot and brought it to a simmer. We then glazed the chicken at the end. The One pot meal included memories of the island flavors yet it was also just plain tasty.
