As some know I was given an ECB friday I seasoned it and later saturday we smoked a whole chicken about 6 lbs.
well our daughter and grandkids showed up and they wanted to stay and eat so we ended up tossing in some pork chops and some pork steaks.
well hours later we took everything out and started to get the meal ready. I noticed when I started to remove one of the breasts it was not all the way done so I tossed the breasts in the oven to finish them off.
I would give this maiden voyage about a 70% success rate.
The legs, thighs and wings where great. the pork chops and pork steaks I could not believe I normally dont eat pork steaks but they reminded me of ribs.
the breasts on the other hand i did not enjoy at all. they came out with more of a rubbery texture than what I am use to.
I will chalk this up as a learning expieriance and avoid whole birds till I make several more adjustments to the ECB
all in all it was a great day.
