Looks great, I'm trying to figure out if that's a lime half or a lemon half with a tan.

Is this your very first? Looks great either way, beautimous color,  What was your brine? And what wood did you smoke with? And most imortantly, got a sliced pic?

That is an orange in the bird with the tan.  The brine is one I "borrowed" from someone on here.  It was;


1cup Kosher salt

1 cup Brown sugar

1 tbs rosemary

1 tbs thyme

4 pressed garlic cloves

2 bay leaves

2 medium oranges sliced


smoked it with lump charcoal and apple chips for about 5 1/2 hours.  put the ABTs on during the last 2 hours.   


That is the first thing I have ever attempted to smoke,  my wife seemed to enjoy it, as did the neighbors.  Looking forward to some leftover sandwiches today, and to doing more in the future.
