So I decided to put my day off to good use. Decided to smoke a couple whole chickens and some ABT's !!!!!!!
My chicken rub before mixing :o)
Da ABT's ready to go in,,,
Chickens waiting for smoke.
Ahhhhh paradise in the San Diego sun.
2 hours and 15 minutes later we are at 165 IT.
Smokey goodness.......damn juicy too!!!
Poor little guys went to pieces :o)
Beautiful ABT's. Wife and kids couldn't get enough. Shoulda made more.
So I smoked with Red Oak and the flavor was amazing. I did add one small chunk of apple wood as well. Smoked at 230F for 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Did something different on wife's suggestion.....she said when she removes the skin all the good rub is gone.....so I made a compound butter with my rub and placed under the breast skin. This baby was bathed the whole cooking time with that deliciousness!!! Made the bird so juicy and tasty that I will be using that method from now on!!!
Now it's cocktail time by the pool. Ahhhhhh love smoking food......it's good to be hooked!!!
