    The wife wanted something other than ribs....so my new Smoke Vault 24 got Chicken as its first customer. Not any chicken though...It was Shooter Rick's Snake Bitten Chicken. I smoked it at 330 degrees and took it up to 180 internal temp. (I could've pulled it at 160 but the pink juices puts me off). Here's a shot of it in the Smoker


    I let it rest for 30 minutes then plated it. Here it is all cut up and ready to enjoy. A wing is missing as my wife had to do exercise quality control.


    I saved some of the drippings, and will use some of it as a sauce for the chicken. I'll shred some chicken for sandwiches tomorrow and use some of the sauce in the sandwhich.

    I love this Smoke Vault. My little GOSM, as good as it is, always had a hard time getting up to 300 degrees and holding temp there.

    Cool...Smoke Vaults seem to be having an awakening this Father's Day!

    Nice bird, OPD...you got a good color on your's, too, I see.

    I never had trouble getting the temps up on my small GOSM. We've had alot of members here get mixed results with them. Mine will crank out 400+ on a moderate day in the 60's-70's. And, it's capable of running down to 110* over ambient if I want to do Jerky on cool days.

    Anyway, enjoy that new rig! I'm likin' mine already after smoking in it for only about 5 hours.


    Happy smokes to ya, and, happy Father's Day!

    Looks like Shooter Rick's stuff is about to become the stuff of legend.
