The Qube



Here is the completed project from last week.
It's a charcoal oven/chicken cooker. All the racks are interchangeable, so you can actually cook food under the charcoal. But then you can switch the grates around and cook food over the charcoal as well. In the bottom picture I have it set up like an oven. Charcoal bin on the top, 2 food grates in the middle, and then a drip pan on the bottom. The entire thing is made from stainless steel except the door latches. But that will soon change; I ordered some stainless steel latches to replace the ones I have on there now. After I fired this thing up Friday night I realized the ones I used were not a great choice. I thought they looked cool, but they are not heavy duty enough to take the heat.

Sweet ! How does it cook ?

I've cooked chicken on it twice now. Both times it came out real nice. I've played around with it set up as an oven, but it might need a few more tweaks. The temp difference was a little too much for my liking. I might incorporate a convection fan.

Have you tried charcoal in both trays ?
