PK / Vortex ?
« Reply #-1 on: October 23, 2017, 05:46:17 PM »
I ordered a Vortex for my kettle. Anyone ever try it in the middle of a PK?
Just thinking out loud.
Thanks

It would probably work. Never thought of that.  The thick aluminum does a pretty good job of holding in the heat.

I do like using a Weber charcoal basket in the PK when going indirect.

I'm thinking the heat forced up uniformly then back down might lead to a crispier skin. Gonna give it whirl once my Vortex gets here.

Love me some crispy chicken skin. Keep us posted when you get it.

It would need to be the smaller of the vortex's I have the medium size and it's a bit too big... Good luck can't wait to see the results!
