    So Safeway had whole Foster Farm birds for $0.86 per/lb. Called my neighbors and told them if they wanted to buy some birds I would smoke them along with mine, if I'm gonna fire up the WSM might as well fill all the racks. Got 4 birds for me, 2 each for two different sets of neighbors. Hit them with a mix of garlic salt, Tony Chachare's Creole Seasoning, and a little bit of left over BBQ rub I had in the cupboard.




    Smoked them at 250° with some hickory. Four on each rack.



    After 4 hrs. and a bit of rest I pulled all the meat off the birds and put half a birds worth of meat in each vacuum bag.




    My hands were a bit busy so I didn't get a ton of picks, but they all turned out great. Now I can just pull out a bag or two and make all kinds of good stuff!

    The definition of a good friend, he picks up chickens and smokes them for you. These look great!

    Points!

    ..... and I got no problems when I want to borrow a tool or ask for help from those same neighbors. [​IMG]   Figure I do what I'm good at in exchange for help with stuff they are good at... lol.

    This should be the Webster's Dictionary definition of neighbor. All neighbors should be like that. Great looking smoke. I love me some smoked chicken.

    Thanks everybody! [​IMG]

    I find keeping the neighbors happy definitely works in my favor, especially with the guy who is a welder!

    Very nice ! Good neighbors, good smokes & good times when favors needed ! Thumbs Up

    I had a neighbor regrade my yard when we redone it & we agreed on a price... I was doing some pulled pork at the time & run some over to him as an extra thanks... He then only wanted to charge me half... LOL. As long as when I done PP, I brought him some !
