1 whole free-range chicken,separated
Yuengling BBQ dry seasoning w/brown sugar
Cavender's greek seasoning
I don't measure, so my apologies there:
Separate chicken into major cuts; thighs, wings, breasts
Season to taste, liberally apply dry rub
Oak splits, no bigger than 2-3" wide for the Watchman, got it good and hot
Place parts directly on cooktop, skin side up
Placed organ meat in foil on potato plate
Cooked for just over an hour until I could manipulate joints of wings and thighs easily. The gizzard, livers, etc were done perfectly in the foil as well in the same time.
Served alongside some greens and fresh fruit.
Using a 14" cast iron frying pan, get the Watchman Stove up to temperature with sticks or small hardwood splits.
Brown / crumble 20 oz chorizo sausage.
Set aside. (save half in a container for tomorrow morning's eggs!).
Using a stainless pot with almost 1 gallon of water, bring to a boil.
While the water is getting up to temperature, take 2) 5"×9" disposable aluminum loaf pans. Scoop 10 oz of chorizo in one. Split a 24 oz jar of spaghetti sauce between the two pans. Cover with foil and place pans on the outer edge of the potato plate to warm. (Some people in our family like plain sauce, hence the use of two pans).
After the water starts to boil, add the desired amount and type of pasta.
After 10 minutes, remove everything from the heat. Drain the pasta and add sauce and grated parmesan cheese.
The chorizo warming in the sauce takes away much of the heat of the sausage, but retains a very nice flavor.
A fist full of spaghetti yields 5-6 generous portions.
Flip the lid back and have a relaxing bonfire while you enjoy your meal by top feeding the stove.
The entire meal and bonfire used one large oak split (8") chunked into 2"×2" pieces.
This was an easy to prepare and delicious meal. I hope you think so, too!
Fill a 3 gallon stainless pot with one gallon of water.
Using small splits of hardwood or sticks, bring the Watchman Stove up to temperature until the water is boiling.
5 lbs whole small new potatoes.
3 lbs beef sausage sliced 3/4" thick.
1/2 cup Old Bay seasoning.
Continue boiling 10-15 minutes.
6 ears of corn, broken in half.
Continue boiling another 5-10 minutes.
Continue boiling approximately 5 minutes, or until shrimp is at desired texture.
Remove from heat and enjoy!
Barry said it's enough to feed an army!
He said he had two pots running; one on the Watchman Stove, one on a propane burner. The Watchman Stove got up to temperature faster, and was even used to finish the second pot on the propane burner!
Thanks for the submission and the awesome feedback, Barry!
