    The day was growing long and I had no plans.. Ran up to the store and bought two hens to prepare for dinner.  I had no Idea what I was going to do with them at the time, but I figured I'de get them in a brine while I figured it out.

    I had been seeing a lot of things on the spit lately and it dawned on me that I haven't had the rotisserie on the UDS in quite some time. So I bolted her up and prepared the spit.

    Got the birds out of the bath, gave em a good rinse and scrambled for a rub. I had some McCormick brown sugar bourbon seasoning just for such occasions.

    In to the UDS over some oak splits for a caveman cook. I seasoned them on the spit as I was running short of time..

    The Q-view is sub par but I wasn't really trying to showcase a meal at the time..







    The birds were fall off the bone a super moist. 

    We gobbled one down and I have the other to tear apart to use in other dishes.

    If you don't have a rotisserie on your UDS, you need one..

    Thanks all.. They were delicious.. 

    I had spent too much time around the fire so they tasted sooty for me. Everyone else disagreed. I know better than to do that, but it's hard not to stare at a fire, drink a few beers and watch chickens roast..

    Thanks Case! I was wanting to try your baking powder mix but I recalled that it needs to sit over night. Didn't have time for that. They came out well..

    Those are some beautiful looking birds. Chicken is one of my favorite dishes. Kudos on a great cook!

    Nice spin!   ... just a reminder Brian put up a rotisserie section to post anything and all rotisserie.  The more we use it the  better so it stays a category

    I like seeing the UDS used for a wood fire spin, we called ours a bird barrel before transforming it into the 007.

    Yeah, sorta forgot it was there. I wish it wasn't buried in the "Build" section.
    I've used mine for everything except cold smoking. I may be building a new one this winter as this one is full of holes..
