Here is my first real post. Pictures included this time as I was told "without pictures it didn't happen".
Please forgive me if I post the pictures wrong of violate a rule, just let me know so I won't do it again.
So on this past Saturday I smoked a couple chickens. I always do 2, since I figure if I'm firing the smoker up, I may as well plan ahead and do extra.
Friday afternoon I cleaned and prepped the birds. A little olive oil and some dry rub that I like for chicken.
Here they are snuggled up together ready to rest for the night:
On Saturday after firing up the smoker to let it preheat I got them ready to go. I use can can stands, filled with lemonade. I like the sweet flavor the lemon gives, and figure why waste the beer when I could be drinking it.
The birds went on @ 9:30 with smoker set to 225 deg. Misted them about every hour with more lemonade.
This picture is at about 170 deg IT.
I pulled them off at 185 deg IT @ 18:15. 8 3/4 hrs of smokey goodness (as my wife calls it), and had to keep from tearing right into them.
I let them rest for about 30 minutes, then dinner was served!!
When I made the first cut, juice came flowing out and down the skin.
Thanks for viewing, and again, please "gently" tell me if I did anything wrong on the post.
