forgot to take pics but my chickens came out amazing! I had some trouble keeping the heat down. next time a little less charcoal I guess, but they were the best chickens I've ever cooked. cooked in about an hour and a half. split side down till last 20 minutes and the skin was golden brown and crispy. cant wait to do a pork sirloin roast and more chicken this weekend!
