... realise it's not strictly Smokin but you can't beat a silly photo...


However without the group i wouldn't have had the confidence to cook chicken on a BBQ - even on a gas grill - went down well served it with Danny's Pot Salad and the Wicked Beans but not too wicked !

Hello Mark.  Looks GREAT!!  So the "mystic" has been lifted.  Chicken DOES NOT have to be pre cooked in the oven.  GREAT JOB!!  You are well on your way.  NOW you have a problem!  You are about to figure out you can't actually FIT a whole side of beef or a large whole hog on your smoker.  Are you sure the Missus will let you park one of those big custom built trailer rigs on the drive??  :ROTF  This will be a very delicate negotiation as you try to explain to her EXACTLY why you NEED to buy a custom built smoker that will hold a 150-200 lb whole hog.  :duel:Good luck with that.  Keep Smokin!

Looks great Mark.


Once it has reached temperature wrap it in 3 layers of foil, breast down to rest for an hour. You will never have tasted chicken as moist and tender before. Even after an hours resting it will still be too hot to pull apart by hand...

Big looking chicken. We struggle to get them that big near here but our local butcher sometimes has them.

Hello.  Yes it is a chicken.  Just for you Wade: you see you can't get decent chickens way down south in those things called Waitrose and such.  They only sell puny miniature versions and then seriously overcharge you for them.  Good luck with your poussion.  Keep Smokin!

Hello Mark.  Big chicken isn't gonna be your problem.  Big pig is gonna be your problem.  Keep Smokin!
