    So, wife wanted some chicken for Dinner before kids went back to school from the Christmas Vacation break.

    Cool, I got this right?? 

    So started out with some EVOO and rub,,, 

    Alpine touch I got for Christmas, and I bought the John H. for Sh$ts & Giggles

    So Into the bag they go

    No measurements, just poured some in right?? LOL 

    Smells good to me

    So after about a 4 hour nap in the fridge,,, onto the racks they go

    Going to use my MES and Pitmasters pellets and the new expanding tube from Todd

    Boy them look tasty right?? 

    SO,,,, After about 2 1/2hrs at 235 or so they are done,,, And smell great right LOL 

    NOPE  ,,,, Remember where I said no measuring LOL 

    SALTY!!!!!!!OMG  once we took the skin off it wasn't bad,,,

    Left overs went into a soup and the best soup I have had in a long time..

    ON A GOOD NOTE!!!! Todds New Expanding tube smoker is the bomb,,, I did not have to nuke pellets, never had to re-light or anything it preformed like a champ,,,, 

    Oh well I will not use as much next time LOL 

    A full smoker is a happy smoker

    Salty DS

    Ah, DS. No measure can be risky. The smoke sure looked good though. That chicken has a great colour.

    DS Looked good and at least the skin did a good job,flavoring the soup.

    Boy it sure looked good. We mostly don't eat the skin anyway. It just holds the juices in. Nice job!

    DS, this was quite the tease this morning! Very nice looking smoke and like others have said, beautiful color.

    At least you could eat without the skin.

    I've made that mistake with Tony Chachere's creole seasoning.  If the color looks great it will be way too salty!  Glad you could salvage some.
