    Did you inject a bottle's worth of sauce into the chicken? I'm anxious to see how this tastes.

    about half a bottle, and this bird was really good. took about 3.45 hours, and rested for about 30 minutes before pulling. Made some good tacos.

    im downloading pics now, be up in a few minutes.

    here are the pics. Really one of the better chickens I have smoked. THe injection really made the meat stay moist, and flavorfull. Made some real nice chicken tacos, and Im guessing a real good chicken salad sandwich for lunch today.

    just out of the smoker:



    after 30 minute rest:



    pulled with tongs:



    wings:



    crisp skin, I rubbed the bird with veg. oil before my rub hoping that would help crisp it up. Also rubbed the inside of the bird with my rub. Smoked it the whole time on the lower rack of the WSM @ about 250... RO lump, and hickory.

    thanks for looking

    thanks.

    I think it was just under 5 lbs., just enough for a family of 3 with some leftovers.

    thanks,

    I think the veg oil under the rub did the trick gettig some crispy skin. even though it was on the lower grate of the WSM the whole time inches above the water bowl.

    Now thats a good looking hunk of chicken there Jim. Did your injection take and was it really juicy and did you get much flavor out of the injection.

    thanks mark

    that Tony C's cajun butter really did the trick. Kept the meat moist, and packed some flavor. It got a good 12 hours plus with the injection inside.

    are you talking about the TOny C's marinade with the injector buddy?

    That is the cheapo injector I use for my butts and didnt have any plans for the marinade it came with, then figured why not give it a try. glad I did.
