    Picked up 20 lbs. leg quarters yesterday,for $8.26 thats 41 cents a lb. wow. Brined 10 Legs & Thighs over night,started the smoker setup at around 8:30 AM

    KBB and Pecan Chunks



    Did not take long to hit 230* put the Legs in 8:50 AM 


    The Temp dropped 20* I guess that was all the cold meat right above the Thermometer 

    Pulled the Legs at 10:30



    Put the Thighs in at 10:50 AM


    Pulled the Thighs at 12:30 PM

    Nice looking smoke! Give those chicken parts an overnight nap in the Riadside brine, tasty stuff!

    We use fish carcasses for crab bait here, cheaper than chicken! For crawdads though it's whole chickens tied to a few fathoms of rope. Pitch in the river and let me sit while you drink a beer. If it's hot enough you can five down and shake off the bugs into a goodie bag. If it's not pull in the chicken and shake into a bucket!
