    Doing a whole chicken and 2 turkey legs for myself and my beautiful wife... :)  I removed the skin from the breast of the chicken, oiled and seasoned the entire bird, then replaced the breast skin with an improved 'skin'... yes... bacon!... seasoned that as well...

    On the turkey legs I peeled back the skin, pierced the silverskin and meat with a fork... basted it all in a mix of veg oil and worcestershire sauce.. pulled the skin back up and secured at the top with toothpicks..

    Got my Webber kettle set up with the iQue 110 at a steady 225... Put the meat on...

    I'll update as I go!

    3:10 hours.... put the turkey legs in a crutch with a touch of red wine... chicken is at 155degrees... I'm going to wait it our to 160, then let it rest... Not sure on the legs... I'm going to play that one by ear....

    Okay.. so pulled the chicken and it's looking good.. resting now... the turkey legs looked good, but were still pretty tough... left them on the smoker and cranked it up to 300degrees... I'll check them in an hour....[​IMG]

    Dinner was a complete success!... Chicken was beautiful... the bacon helped keep the breast moist and helped keep the smoke at a perfect level... Turkey legs stayed on for another hour while we ate... just pulled them and a sample tells us we did good... :)... lunch tomorrow promises to be great![​IMG]
