So after months of reading all of the smoking posts from all of you good folks I finally got my smoker up and running. Smoking a turkey breast, and chicken breasts tonight. My first, actually second smoke, but I didn't get pics of my first so this is my forum first.
Here are some pics of my modded Brinkman ECB, and the chicken. I spatchcocked it to help speed up the cooking, mainly because it was so late in the night that I wanted dinner before 8 PM. Seasoned it with a dry rub I put together, and went out for a walk with the wife. Started the smoker an hour later, and got her up and going. Taking advice from a lot of the posts I've read it turned out great.
A few take aways for my next smoke:
1. Add more salt, was too easy on it. The skin tasted great, especially with the quick glaze I put together (honey, spicy mustard, brown sugar, olive oil), but after the skin the taste didn't penetrate too deeply.
2. Add more smoke, it had a faint hint of smoke. I didn't want to over do the smoke, but now I know a little more won't hurt. Here's my pics.
Thanks to everyone for their posts, really helpful info. I'm addicted, smoked every night since Sunday night. lol.
