    On Thursday, I made a dry rub and massaged dem legs and thighs with it...cooked them for about 3 hours at 250...temps fluctuated a bit as i am still learning how to control the temp...cranked it to 350 for last 30 minutes to try and get crispy skin...it kinda worked...overall I was pleased with smell and taste was a little dry due to not having a thermometer (it arrived yesterday :)

    Filled the Akorn with cowboy lump and did a top down semi volcano using the weber cube (1/2 of one) when temp hit 250...tossed in a handle of apple chips and put in a heat deflector (weber replacement grill wrapped with alum foil) kept an eye on the temp for 15 minutes then added the chicken...
