This is my second smoke and I did a whole chicken in the Slaughterhouse brine and I loved it! Thanks for that tip!
I pulled all the food out of the bottom drawer of the fridge and made the brine and placed the chicken in that since
there is very little room in fridge for such a large container...that was the perfect solution.
Using the Minion method i got my coals going and placed in the two halves and began smoke with Apple chunks.
I have an offset smoker by the way, Charbroil (little one) American Gourmet.I am getting better keeping temp where I want
At 3-1/2 hours temp was 140 though, my wife was hungry so I pulled 'em off the smoker and brought the temp up using
our convection oven for fifteen minutes at 325, Done. While I was smoking she was making my favorite side Pasta salad
When you use your therm wait as long as you can cause after you poke it juice runs out!!! Skin was crisp in only a few places
but that was okay, it didn't matter to me, or my Honey. Oh yea, I used the Slaughterhouse spritz on it every hour also.
Smoked Chicken, Pasta salad, cottage cheese, baked beans,garlic cheese bread and a glass of whiskey 7 !
And my wife loves that I'm cookin again! Priceless!
