So flavor wise the bird was great. The injected hot side was spicy and the non injected side was flavorful and moist. The one thing that didn't turn out great was the skin. My theory on this is that the injection added to much moisture to the cook which created more steam not allowing the skin to get nice and toasty. So from now on, on full birds it will be non-injected birds for me, except wings.

They are humanely raised and humanely killed just like other chickens, but cost a lot more.  I guess their chicken house is filled with love!  th_dunno-1[1].gif
 

LOL!  How the heck do you "humanely kill" a dang chicken?!?  Best I ever seen was when one of my grandaddy's freinds cut the heads off then let go...they ran around for a few minutes without their heads!

 

 

Great looking yard bird there Case-man!  So tell me...how did the half-hot experiment work out?

Thanks Bill. The hot side was hot and spicy and the other side was moist and not hot and spicy. So it worked!

Thanks Alesia. Pretty easy to do with a spatched bird! Just have to remember which side is which!

I always spatch chicken, cornish hens and turkeys...faster cooking! Remembering would be the key!!!

Great , Case... as for your Pecan wood causing too dark a color on the skin... I (IMHO) would take the extra trouble and preburn my wood to Embers and then introducing them to the Chicken. A much cleaner smoke and all the goodness of the Pecan.  Just a thought...

The wood does make a little difference on the color but the most difference imo is the cooker.   The top is one of Case's cooked with Pecan, the bottom is one of mine cooked with Mulberry.  Both chickens are extremely dark because they were cooked on the WSM mini at the same temp ranges. UDS can do the same thing but the main reason imo is that the  drippings come back on the birds and give some incredible flavors. 

 

WSM mini's  are incredible little cookers... I'm glad Case turned me on to it!!!
