On the way home from a nice huevos rancheros breakfast this morning at Pete's, my favorite local cafe, I decided atmospheric conditions were just perfect for a smoke.
I decided to do chicken quarters so I can use the skin and bones to make some smoked chicken stock tonight, and then some chicken soup tomorrow. I'll probably freeze most of the chicken meat for later use, same with the onions. I love having the smoked onions on hand. Like bacon, they make everything better! This time I'm doing two onions straight up, and two packed with some cajun spices. MmmmMmmmm! I guarantee it!
Here are the big fat chicken quarters. No brine, No nuthin'
The onions are sweet, from Maui. Aloha!
And now they are all in there smokin'!
Here are the seasoned onions!
These two pieces of chicken (from the far end of the smoker) came off first.
Then, next thing you know, ol' Jed's a millionaire!
Unnecessary close up shot. Watch the glare!
Man, it was great to get one last smoke in before the clock ran out on 2010. It was a good smoke today and a great way to finish out the year.
Hope you enjoyed the Q View!
Thanks for looking in!
