    Ok, I seem to have temperature control down, holding steady at 225-250 degrees an hour and a half in. I'm making two beer can chickens in my Brinkmann two door vertical.

    Here's a pick from one hour in:

    I've turned them around to face forward since then (not to get better pics, but for easier basting.

    Oh, they were good. What I love is that the skin of the chix kind of fuses to the meat, so no matter how you carve it, the skin stays on and everyone gets some.

    The meat is incredibly juicy. I kept them warm in the oven at 170 for about two hours after the cooking was done and it was still moist. Even today the meat was juicy.

    Another thing I love is that as moist as it was, the meat still held together when cut. If I am able to do this with a turkey, forget about it. I won't do Thanksgiving any other way.
