I have the Cuisinart Bristol. I have cooked items individually, but now want to cook several items together at the same time. Looking for advice on the following:
>Temperature?
>Time?
>Wood pellet flavor?
>When to place each item on the grill/remove each item from the grill?

Planning to cook the following items together:
>Filet kabobs with onions, peppers and mushrooms.
>Corn on the cob. (keep or remove the husk?)
>Boneless/skinless chicken breasts.
>Baked potatoes.
>Broccoli.

Thank you for any advice offered.

I use competition blend. You can start at 225 degrees. Pull back husk and spread butter and seasoning on them then pull the husk back over them. Won’t take long on vegetables but you’ll need a temperature probe to insert in the biggest piece of chicken you have. Put your rub on them and spritz with Apple juice hourly. I’d shoot for a internal temperature of around 165 degrees. You can also as a rule of thumb , push on the meat. If it stays indented it isn’t ready but if it springs back you’ll be good. Send pictures. We all like to see what everyone cooks and comes with.

Cod (and chicken) with grilled pineapple peppers and corn - fish tacos. Mesquite wood pellets.

Tomatoes (fresh from my garden) onion and garlic - salsa (with cilantro). Apple wood pellets.

Also looking for advice on the best quality pellets. I have read that some brands use fillers. Also read that Lumber Jack is 100% wood no fillers. I have tried Traeger, Pit Boss, and Bear Mountain. Getting ready to try LJ but curious to hear others’ experiences.
