    Alright so I wanted to surprise my wife with a nice "fancy" dinner so I decided I would cook up some hens. To my surprise my wife has never had them, so that was cool. They came out delicious, I cooked them to a breast IT of 165 as suggested. Same goes for the whole chickens, I cooked them the same way. Along with the dinner I buttered up some french bread and put them in the toaster oven to get crunchy. I threw in some white rice and veggies in the rice cooker/steamer, and then threw on some Bush's beans over the stove. I wish I had some disposable foil trays so I could have done the beans in the smoker like I did the baked potatoes. Well I'll not make this such a heavy Q-View as the past, enjoy.



    So thin the camera hardly picked it up.




    I must have had the camera on a small setting sorry for the small pics.

    *no just click the photo's and they come up bigger, some new setting? I'm not sure, hope you like.

    Looks fan-dang-delicious!  Nice smoke! 

    You can also get yourself a small cast iron dutch oven instead of those foil pans....  Goes great in the smoker!  And those beans pick up plenty of smoke.

    Ooooh good tip on the cast iron dutch oven, I'll have to find one would be cheaper than constantly buying disposables. We have a fancy looking one that was a wedding gift, its white I believe. I don't think my wife would appreciate me putting that in the smoker.

    Thanks for the compliments fella's. I keep trying to show the wife I've earned a Lang [​IMG]  except I want a super pimped out 48 mobile hahaha. Go big or go home right?

    I definitely need a bigger plate, that was so much food. I ended up eating 3 slices of bread, 2 servings of beans, and almost ate the whole bird. Just tapped out at the end of one of the breasts. When I pulled it off the bone for left overs it made me laugh how little was left. My wife she ate her initial plate and half a bird which is a lot for her and she was happy with the meal :).

    Well, thanks for looking.
