Well tonights menu consisted of burgers, mac & cheese and fries (inventive I know). Once I got done there was plenty of life left in the coals and my wife had just gone to the store, so there was a fresh chicken just begging to be smoked.
So I moved the coals over to one side for a little indirect smoking, tossed on some mesquite and prepped the bird. Some butter with garlic under the skin, light olive oil over the top and some coarse chopped celery stuffed in the cavity plugged by an onion. Sprinkled some cayenne, rosemary and lemon pepper. I didn't want a lot of seasoning on the outside, or better put didn't need, as I am planning on pulling this one for sandwiches.
Sorry, no q-view of the bird before it went on, I did say it was prepared hurriedly and on a whim, right?
Before I get beat on about no pics, I do have a couple (pretty bad) pictures with the bird on the smoker at about the 1.5 hour mark. I'll also take a few of the finished product.
The original plan was to do a beer can chicken but realized I only had bottled beer and no cans!
