We had a friend over who only eats free range organic blah blah blah blah blah... So I said bring your bird and I'll smoke it! Set the Mini-WSM up for the normal high temp chicken smoke, 365 brand Lump, Cherry, Pecan. Honestly couldn't tell any difference in the flavor, texture, or moistness of this super bird. So I think that I will stick with my $0.99 per pound birds.
Cha Ching!!! Spendy little bird!
Chickens eat bugs, these are free range chickens. Bugs live everywhere, Vegetarian Diet???? Must be spraying the Free Range fields and chickens with insecticide daily!
Even though it was "Air Chilled", I decided to go ahead and Air Dry it for a bit while the Mini warmed up.
Done, pulled it off the smoker at an IT of 166°. Let it rest for 15 minutes while we prepped a few more items.
Didn't direct grill just was running the Mini hot, was at 350°-355° the entire cook.
See that line on the wing??? For whatever reason both wings had that incision on them
